BENTONG: Pahang voters have been deluged with pamphlets, flags, pens, caps, buttons and badges by political parties seeking their attention and, hopefully, their votes on Saturday.
There were also tissue boxes with pictures of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak and Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob.
Raub incumbent Datuk Dr Ng Yen Yen added a personal touch with button badges and plastic fans with her pictures printed on them - a clever way of reminding her constituents about her.
Several large billboards of Bentong incumbent Datuk Liow Tiong Lai were erected throughout the area.
Just after a week of campaigning, these billboards evolved to include not just Liow’s image, but also those of his Barisan Nasional comrades defending the state seats in the Bentong constituency.
Instead of the trademark Barisan blue background that he used in the first week, Liow used orange, purple and brown this time.
Over on the DAP’s side, giant red rockets were placed in strategic areas, particularly in Raub where the party is focussing on wresting the Tras state seat from Barisan.
Its button badges even comes with electornic lighting of its rocket symbol, with a twist of a knob.
