JOHOR BAHRU - The Election Commission (EC) is targeting a turnout of at least 99 per cent among the 927 police personnel eligible to cast their ballots in early voting for the Pulai parliamentary by-election today.

EC chairman Tan Sri Abdul Ghani Salleh said the early voting process at the Kempas police station and Regional Two Marine Police (PPM) headquarters here was proceeding smoothly.

The two voting centres opened at 8 am today, and the one at the Kempas police station closed at noon while the other centre will close at 5 pm.

"There are two voting streams at the Region Two PPM headquarters and one at the Kempas police station. The voting trend has been very good, registering 16 per cent after the first hour and 34 per cent after the second.

"We hope both early voting centres can achieve good turnouts of at least 99 per cent," he told reporters in the compound of the Region Two PPM headquarters.
