POLITICS-ELECTION: PETALING JAYA, Malaysia – Najib commits election offence by campaigning on polling day: Bersih

PETALING JAYA: Former premier Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak has committed an election offence by campaigning for Barisan Nasional (BN) on polling day of the Sungai Kandis by-election, according to Bersih 2.0.

The electoral watchdog said the former premier’s statement on his Facebook earlier today was tantamount to an offence under Election Offences Act.

Bersih said Najib had specifically violated Section 26(1)(a) and (f) of the act.

Section 26(1)(a) of the Election Offences Act states that no person shall, on polling day, hold or organise in any place any form of meeting, rally, display or entertainment or give any form of address or lecture whether or not the event is open to the public or otherwise;

Section 26(1)(f) of the same act state that no person shall on behalf of any candidate, canvass for the votes of electors in any constituency for or against any candidate or political party at an election by whatever

Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razakmeans.


Najib, who is Pekan MP, had in his Facebook appealed to the public to give BN a chance in the by-election by voting for its candidate Datuk Lokman Noor Adam in order for the latter to defend and champion the interest of the rakyat in Sungai Kandis and Selangor.

“Lokman is highly-educated, proven to be a brave warrior by fighting for the truth and will never stop from defending justice for the rakyat,” he said.
