KKB polls: Go out to vote with peace of mind as safety assured, says s'gor police

SHAH ALAM: The public need not worry about voting in the Kuala Kubu Baharu (KKB) state by-election because public order and security are assured, says Selangor police chief Datuk Hussein Omar Khan.

He said voters can fulfil their responsibilities without concerns.

"Selangor police guarantee the safety of voters. Those involved are advised to park their vehicles in appropriate places and follow the instructions of the officers on duty," he said in a statement here on Friday (May 10).

Hussein also reminded candidates and their supporters to observe the law during the voting on Saturday (May 11).

He said all parties should refrain from touching on the 3R issue (royalty, religion and race) and avoid any provocations.

Hussein said five investigation papers were opened involving two arrests during the campaign period from April 27 until May 9.

He said the five investigation papers involved Sections 4 and 4(A) of the Election Act 1954, Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act and Section 504 of the Penal Code.

"Out of the five investigation papers, two local men have been charged in court,” he said, adding that no ceramah and campaigns were conducted without a permit.

The by-election is a four-cornered fight involving Pang Sock Tao (Pakatan Harapan), Khairul Azhari Saut (Perikatan Nasional), Hafizah Zainuddin (Parti Rakyat Malaysia) and Nyau Ke Xin (Independent). – Bernama
