“If they (PKR) feel that there has been electoral fraud in some constituencies they contested in, they can reject the results in these areas,” he said yesterday.
Anwar had refused to accept the outcome of the elections, claiming that there had been vote-rigging and electoral discrepancies.
Karpal also expressed satisfaction with DAP's win of 38 parliamentary seats in the polls.
“DAP has done very well, especially in Gelang Patah, where the win was unexpected,” he added.
However, party adviser Lim Kit Siang, who defeated Barisan Nasional'sDatuk Abdul Ghani Othman in Gelang Patah, said the party would file an election petition to reject the results in areas where it had lost by small margins.
He said the petition would be filed after a detailed analysis of the election results.
“Pakatan Rakyat will look into the constituencies found with problems of electoral fraud before taking the next step, which is necessary to ensure the results are fair and accurate,” he told a press conference yesterday.
