PRESS STATEMENT: 1 MAY 2013
The PKR candidate N 15 Christina Liew calls on the parties not to be over zealous in their support of their political masters to the point of sabotaging and vandalizing her party flags, billboards and banners.
“Please stop vandalizing PKR posters, billboards and banners. This is too much dirty tactic. Hitting us blow belt will not help you to win. Let the people decide who they want to vote. Let us have a gentlemen competition.”
“I have suffered setbacks from day one in my campaign due to this despicable act of certain irresponsible persons. My flags are being snatched or vandalized to the point I have to re install them almost every night with the limited resources and manpower.
I received telephone calls and sms almost every day/night reporting to me whereabouts my campaign billboards and banners were destroyed. This is not healthy. Please stop it.”
