PENANTI BY-ELECTION: BN denies bid to send voters away

May 28, 2009

GEORGE TOWN: The state Barisan Nasional has rubbished claims that it will be sending busloads of party members to Kuala Lumpur to prevent them from casting votes during the Penanti by-election on May 31.

Permatang Pauh Umno division chief Datuk Abdul Jalil Abdul Majid attributed such malicious rumours to Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR).

"It is normal for PKR and its Pakatan Rakyat allies to create such ridiculous rumours.

"They will go to great lengths to tarnish our image and hide their weaknesses."

Talk has been rife in Penanti that the BN, namely Umno, would be sending several busloads of party members to Kuala Lumpur for the weekend from Friday to prevent them from voting in the by-election on Sunday.
The trip is allegedly sponsored by Jalil.

"If I really have that much money, why stop at just Kuala Lumpur? I might as well take them to London or even Paris," he said sarcastically.

Jalil, however, said with the school holidays starting this week, it was normal for people to organise getaways. "If they go on their own, we should not be dragged into all this."

Another trip is said to be sponsored by Seberang Jaya assemblyman Datuk Arif Shah Omar Shah, who also scoffed at such talk.

He said the BN and Umno would never do such an irresponsible thing.

"Malaysia is a democratic country. There is no need for us to prevent voters from exercising their rights."


P/S: What an Idea!...this is their(PKR) tactical to fight with BN....Is that ALL you Got it?!
