Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Parliament and Law) Datuk Shabudin Yahya told the Dewan Negara on Wednesday (Dec 16) that the Election Commission (EC) will set up more polling centres and polling streams to encourage voters to come out to vote when the 15th General Election takes place.

Shabudin said this in response to a supplementary question by Senator Idris Ahmad on the government’s efforts to increase the rakyat’s confidence to vote if the pandemic has not ended when GE15 is called.
