A report submitted to parliament on 4 August by the Public Accounts Commission (PAC) showed that none of the six LCS orders had been approved, even though the RM9.13 billion contract was signed nearly a decade ago. It also highlighted a controversial procurement deal after it was never handed over.
The government has paid RM6.08 billion (two-thirds of the total) to local contractor Boosted Naval Shipyard (BNS), but none of the ships have been delivered, according to PAC.
On Friday, Ismail Sabri urged Anwar to retract his allegations of illegal voting among members of the military in the Bela constituency of Pahang state.
Speaking at a PH event in Kuala Nels, Terengganu on Friday, Anwar said: he claimed to have evidence of illegal early voting ahead of the designated early voting scheduled for November 15.
He said the vote was against rules set by the Electoral Commission (EC).
Anwar also claimed voters were paid RM300 and called on the EC to take strict action to avoid polluting this year’s elections.
“I am asking for this to be fixed, which means that all votes cast by soldiers in Bela today must be voided and voted again on November 15,” Anwar said.
Mr Ismail Sabri said Mr Anwar had insulted members of the military by making the accusations. According to Ismail Sabri, the early voting Anwar mentioned may actually be a mail-in ballot involving military personnel who were unable to attend early voting on November 15.
