Group warns on Malaysia elections

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — An international human rights group said Wednesday it fears Malaysians will not get a fair vote in this week’s general elections because of an uneven playing field favoring the ruling National Front coalition.

New York-based Human Rights Watch urged Malaysia to eradicate bias from the electoral process. Opposition and activist groups say the process is rife with irregularities.

Malaysian law minister Nazri Abdul Aziz denied the allegations, accusing Human Rights Watch of discrediting the elections because they know the National Front will win.

To me, Human Rights Watch is biased. They are not important at all. It’s only their opinion, he told The Associated Press. E-mail to a friend
