Now at 1:15pm Malaysian time, I got this piece of nugget from Malaysian Insider (link as above):
1.00pm: The National Institute for Electoral Integrity executive director Amin Iskandar says the election watchdog is unhappy with the high police presence in Chinese-majority areas compared with Malay areas. Heavy rain across the constitutency at the moment.
Some people have commented that perhaps this is done to deter the Chinese voters from coming out and voting, because it is seen as a runaway case for the Chinese to put in their votes for Anwar.
If this is the game that the BN is playing, I hope that the voters will not be intimidated by this. Go out and vote, and stay out of trouble. If need be, just run to the election halls, throw in your vote, and run back home. Don’t even stop to pet a stray cat or dog.
Go out and vote. Just stay out of trouble. Don’t answer to any provocation, be they coming from anyone. If someone is saying something you don’t like, just ignore and walk away. With sensitivities flying high, we never know what to expect.
But no matter what it is, go out and vote!
