Yesterday, 27 March, Sepang Municipal Council president Datuk Puasa Md Taib urged political parties to not put up campaign materials, including party flags, before dissolution of Parliament
Puasa stressed that action will be taken against political parties who put up their campaign materials at unauthorised locations
"We will not hesitate to take action against any party that put up their campaign materials (at locations) that can distract or obstruct road users' line of sight," he was quoted as saying by NST.
He also said that complaints regarding such campaign materials can be forwarded to the Municipal Council.
"Complaints regarding this can be forwarded to the council for action to be taken. So far, we have not received any such complaints," he added.
Political parties and candidates contesting in the 14th general election (GE14) are required to get approval from the council to put up their campaign materials
Puasa said that political parties and candidates have to obtain consent from the council and pay a deposit before they can put up their campaign materials.
"In the excitement to campaign, one should not go overboard and break the law or endanger the public," he added.
Official campaign period for elections can only begin on nomination day itself, which has been previously extended from seven to 11 days minimum
