Najib consolidates and compromises Corrected 11.56pm, 24 April 2009

We mistakenly reported that Datuk Seri Zulhasnan Rafique had lost his bid for an Umno supreme council post during the party elections in March.

Zulhasnan had in fact won a place on the supreme council, polling 1,431 votes and coming in 22nd place.

We apologise for the error.

Dr M happy with Mukhriz’s appointment (updated) Corrected 12.00noon, 10 April 2009

Bernama mistakenly reported that Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir graduated with a degree in business administration from Sofia University, Bulgaria. The university Mukhriz graduated from was Sophia University in Shinjuku, Tokyo.

Bernama also misspelt the name of the university as “Sofea” University in another part of its report.

We apologise for replicating these mistakes on The Nut Graph.

From Gantang Hill to mountain Corrected 12.05pm, 9 April 2009

We misspelt Dr Siti Mariah Mahmud’s name as Dr Siti Mariam Mahmud. 

We apologise for our carelessness.

Sweet victory for Nizar in Bukit Gantang (Updated 1:27am) Corrected 6:30pm, 8 April 2009

We mistakenly put the number of seats PAS has in parliament at 22, and the total BN seats at 138. These figures, taken from the official parliament website, do not reflect the actual composition of parliamentarians. PAS has 23 MPs, after winning the Kuala Terengganu by-election in January and retaining the Bukit Gantang parliamentary seat.

We apologise for the errors.

Testing transition Corrected 11.20am, 2 April 2009

We mistakenly wrote that the online petition titled We have no confidence in [Najib] as Prime Minister of Malaysia had garnered signatures including from 141 Members of Parliament (MPs). The signatures from the public will be directed at 141 MPs and don’t include the MPs signatures.

We also misspelt Altantuya Shaariibuu’s name as “Altantuya Shariibuu”.

We apologise for the errors.

No holds barred in Bukit Gantang Corrected 11.15pm, 1 April 2009, and 2.11pm, 2 April 2009

We erroneously reported that former Bukit Gantang Member of Parliament Datuk Tan Lian Hoe was from the MCA. She isn’t. She is from Gerakan.

We also mislabelled the pie chart, the percentages for Indian Malaysians and Chinese Malaysians were swapped.

We apologise for the errors.
