‘BN in sinister plot against Perak Pakatan’

The Perak government is breaking the law to ensure the defeat of prominent opposition figures in the next election, says DAP’s state chief.

(Free Malaysia Today) – DAP has accused Barisan Nasional of executing a sinister plot against Pakatan Rakyat leaders to ensure its victory in Perak in the coming general election.

Perak DAP chief Nga Kor Ming said the current state government was currently engaged in illegally increasing the number of postal voters and shifting voters across constituencies.

He said the initial feedback from his informers was that BN was targeting, among others, himself, former menteri besar Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin and Perak PKR deputy chief Dr Lee Boon Chye.

Nga is the MP for Taiping and state assemblyman for Pantai Remis. PAS’s Nizar is the MP for Bukit Gantang and state assemblyman for Pasir Panjang, and Dr Lee is the MP for Gopeng.

Nga claimed that 700 voters from Sitiawan, a DAP stronghold, had been transferred to Pasir Panjang to ensure Nizar’s loss of his state seat.

He also said there had been an influx of 10,309 voters into the Gopeng parliamentary constituency, which used to be a stronghold of MCA.

He said there was talk that BN would field MCA president Dr Chua Soi Lek in Gopeng in the coming election.

“Where has this fantastic number of voters turn up from, especially when Gopeng is considered a dead town? All the young people have left for other towns and cities to make a living.”

In Taiping, he said, 2,000 new postal voters had been registered for the Aulong state seat, where there are no army camps.

Nga also referred to a rumour that BN would move Menteri Besar Zambry Abdul Kadir to federal level and replace him with Second Finance Minister Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah.  According to the rumour, Zambry is reluctant to move but that Perak Umno, especially its youth wing, is not happy with him and wants him out of the state.

Nga said he doubted the truth of the rumour.
