UMNO members: Should SPR President and Deputy President resign?

According to a media statement (Kenyataan Media) by PKR below, they should resign because there are UMNO members and therefore there is conflict of interest and they cannot be expected to be independent.

However, I remembered reading they Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof (President SPR/EC) and Wan Ahmad Wan Omar (Deputy President SPR/EC) claimed they had resign prior to taking up the post. However, I am not in a position to check the veracity of their statements.

Even then, if they had really resigned prior to taking up their posts, because of their past association with UMNO, there would still be sentiments of attachment to UMNO and therefore I doubt they can really be independent. And from their past actions and statements, my opinion is they are not independent and tend to side UMNO/BN.

So my opinion is that they should resign irrespective of their current UMNO membership and based on their past actions including allowing the Election Offences Act Amendment to be presented and passed by the UMNO/BN dominated Parliament plus other reasons too long to be appended here.

PENGERUSI DAN TIMBALAN PENGERUSI SPR DISARAN SEGERA LETAK JAWATAN

Parti Keadilan Rakyat memandang serius perkara keterlibatan Pengerusi SPR Tan Sri Abd Aziz Yusof dan Timbalan Pengerusi SPR Dato Wan Ahmad Wan Omar yang sah menjadi ahli Umno sementara masih memegang jawatan di dalam SPR.

Parti Keadilan Rakyat berpegang kepada prinsip bahawa kepercayaan awam adalah syarat tonggak dalam kriteria perlantikan seseorang sebagai anggota di dalam SPR. Seorang yang diamanahkan menduduki jawatan sebagai anggota SPR hendaklah diyakini bebas, tidak berpihak dan ‘non-partisan’. Ternyata Pengerusi dan Timbalan Pengerusi SPR gagal dalam ujian asas ini apakala terbukti mereka berdua sah menjadi ahli UMNO sepertimana maklumat berikut:

Nama ABDUL AZIZ BIN MOHD YUSOF
No KP 500124105279
No KP Lama 2698922
No Keahlian UMNO 113804
Kod Cawangan 09920036=SRI AMPANG BARU
Kod DUN 09920=LEMBAH JAYA
Kod Bahagian 099 = AMPANG
Negeri SELANGOR

Nama WAN AHMAD BIN WAN OMAR
No KP 490101035179
No KP Lama 2756290
No Keahlian UMNO 2374564
Kod Cawangan 02213049=KUBANG BUNGGOR
Kod DUN 02213= CHETOK
Kod Bahagian 022 = PASIR MAS
Negeri KELANTAN

Kita berpendapat jalan terbaik untuk kedua-dua mereka membantu mengembalikan kepercayaan rakyat terhadap kewibawaan institusi SPR lebih-lebih lagi pada ketika Malaysia akan menghadapi pilihanraya umum ke 13 akan datang ialah segera meletak jawatan.
Sekian, terima kasih.
