BN denied giving out cash to voters

Datuk Arif Shah Omar Shah, Barisan Nasional candidate for the Permatang Pauh by-election is denying giving out cash to buy voters. But he didn't denied that cash transferred hand and the money is for logistic expenses.

Bullshit. All Barisan Nasional supporters know the following kickback:
1). You get paid to walk among the supporters and BN candidate to the nomination station.
2). You get paid to cast your vote for the BN candidate.
3). You get paid to line up at the road-side to show support to the VIP motorcade.

Payment is between RM20 to RM50 per attendance. Of the campaign manager will tell the supporters that those are duit minyak.

This practice is very rampant in the rural areas and kampong.


Money for logistics work, says Arif Shah

BUTTERWORTH: Barisan Nasional candidate Datuk Arif Shah Omar Shah denied talk that the party was giving out cash to buy over voters.

He said the coalition's election machinery gave between RM50 and RM500 to individuals to carry out logistics preparations.

“We gave them money to do logistics work for us. There is nothing more than that,” he told reporters here yesterday.

It has been alleged that the Barisan machinery personnel gave voters money in exchange for photocopies of their MyKad. “We did not want any abuse of funds by the election agents or middlemen. So, we insisted that they produce MyKad photocopies to receive payment,” he said.
