This is what Abdul Aziz (President SPR/EC) and Wan Ahmad (Deputy President SPR/EC) contented when faced with allegations that they are UMNO members and thus cannot be independent.
However, does this 2 officials really knows their role in SPR (Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya), that is, EC (Election Commission)? The Election Commission is supposed to be independent!!!!
A public servant takes order from their superiors and thus cannot act independently. They don't know their roles. This must be the reason why they had been acting as if they are branches of UMNO/BN.
Abdul Aziz and Wan Ahmad must resign as demanded by BERSIH 3.0 as it is clear they are not acting out their true role as an independent commission. Further, it is stated that members of the EC must enjoy public confidence and confidence is what is lacking now. The public do not have confidence in them being able to really act independently.
