MALACCA: Barisan Nasional's Duyong state election operation hub was broken into and the constituency's incumbent Datuk Gan Tian Loo believes that it was the work of saboteurs.
MCA's Gan will face state DAP chairman Goh Leong San in an intense race to wrest the Malay-majority sub-urban state constituency.
A computer containing electorate data and a television set went missing in the early morning break-in.
“I don't why the burglars wanted to carter away the CPU of the computer system and the television set but left other valuables behind.
“I feel extremely sad as crucial information about the electorate has vanished including data of our election strategy was also
missing,” he said.
Gan said one of his election workers discovered the operation hub was broken into when he arrived at site at 9.30am on Wednesday.
He said the burglars could have entered via the back window when the hub was left locked after most Barisan volunteers attended midnight ceremahs at the Kota Melaka parliamentary.
“I am sure this is not a normal break-in as those intruders were aiming for election related documents,” he said adding that a police report was lodged at Kandang police station at 10.25am.
