On November 2, MAMA "nullified" illegal votes they detected between October 26 and November 1 and halted voting from 4:00 am to 8:00 am. In addition, they announced that they "will take stronger measures against illegal voting if it continues, including nullifying the votes confirmed to be illegitimate, blocking the relevant IP addresses, and permanently deleting the relevant accounts."[9]
