KUALA LUMPUR — Jan. 14, 2019: Any issue on finance or money politics in the Cameron Highlands parliamentary by-election will be investigated by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) while the police will focus on security matters.
“We held a meeting a few days ago and financial issues will be investigated by MACC and not the police. So far, the by-election is coming along smoothly,” said Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun after the handing over of duties at Bukit Aman, the national police headquarters.
The four-cornered by-election on January 26 is being held after the election court declared the victory of Datuk C. Sivarraajh of Barisan Nasional in the 14th general elections last year as null and void because of corrupt practices to influence voters.
In Tanah Rata, independent candidate Wong Seng Yee wants the authorities to conduct an immediate investigation into claims that a political party (Pakatan Harapan coalition) had given money to the Orang Asli.
Wong said that if the claims were true, it was most disappointing.The local man today brought journalists to visit his chrysanthemum farm in Habu near here. — Bernama
