Dr Chan, fuming over rumours that the party was resorting to buying votes in the election, assured that SUPP would never stoop so low to win in that manner.
“I’ve heard some very disturbing news…that somebody is ringing around sort of saying about vote buying and all sorts of things happening here in Miri. The rumours even say the people only have to bring their ICs to the party and they can get RM50 or RM100.
“It will never happen in Miri,” Dr Chan told reporters after meeting members of Miri Taxi Association here yesterday.
He assured that SUPP would never resort to such ‘dirty tactics’.
“I don’t know who spread the rumours and bad thing like this in Miri. I hope we can catch those responsible for starting such rumours because we work very hard here in Miri,” he said.
Dr Chan said the party wanted the people to support their candidates or party because of their performance or services to the people.
SUPP never used dirty tricks to win an election, he assured.
“It is something very shameful if the party is to use such tactics,” he added. He called on the people with information on those spreading the rumours to come forward to help the party in its investigations.
The party after receiving numerous calls from the public on the matter had lodged a police report.
Dr Chan believed that the rumours were just to confuse and cause the people to vent their anger at the party if they could not get what they want from it.
