SHABERY REMINDS VOTERS AGAINST BEING SWAYED BY PAS CAMPAIGN

KUALA BESUT, July 14 (Bernama) -- Communication and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek today reminded the voters of Kuala Besut against being influenced by the PAS campaign which seemed to want disability in Terengganu after the by-election on July 24.

He said disability would bring no benefit to the people in Terengganu which had seen much development brought by the federal and state governments since 2004.

"Besides the federal government, the state government has continued to implement development. The era of the PAS government (1999-2004) was a black mark in the history of Terengganu," he told reporters after a visit to the media centre set up for the Kuala Besut state by-election, here.

PAS has been using the "16-16" slogan to emphasise that victory in the by-election for the party would result in a hung state assembly with 16 seats for the Barisan Nasional (BN) and 16 for the opposition Pakatan Rakyat.

Asked whether the opposition election campaign would be covered by the government media, Ahmad Shabery said media such as Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM) were empowered to make professional judgements based on the news.
