State polls: Roadblocks to be set up from midnight


KUALA LUMPUR: Bukit Aman will conduct roadblocks nationwide from midnight onwards as part of a post-election operation, says Tan Sri Razarudin Husain.

The Inspector-General of Police said the operation, codenamed Ops Kawal Nusa, is aimed at crime prevention as well as to ensure the safety of the people and public order.

"We also remind all supporters not to organise parades or large gatherings once results are announced.

"We will take stern action against any party or individual who breaks the law," he said during a special press conference at Bukit Aman on Saturday (Aug 12).

The IGP said the police will also focus on safeguarding state palaces and government administrative centres.

"We want to ensure there is no disturbance to the respective Sultans and Governors," he said.

He commended candidates and supporters who have shown political maturity since nomination day by not causing trouble.

"I hope this will continue during the post-election period," he said.

The country's top cop also saluted all police personnel and officers involved in the elections for their hard work and sacrifice.
