BALAKONG: Residents in Taman Megah in the Cheras 9th Mile area were treated to duelling ceramahs on either side of their Thursday (Aug 23) pasar malam.

The MCA and Pakatan Harapan candidates for the Balakong by-election had set up their ceramah stages a few hundred metres apart at the housing area’s commercial area.

Entourages  led by Pakatan’s Wong Siew Ki and MCA's Tan Chee Teong both greeted each other while meeting with voters at the night market.

The two even found time to enjoy some campaign hilarity, such Wong joking that she was perspiring as the media snapped the two, while Tan offered to help Wong wipe off her perspiration.

As part of the night's line-up, both sides had also brought in party figures to speak.
