Tian Chua Condemns By-Election on 26 August 2008

Keadilan information chief Tian Chua condemned the authorities' decision to hold the vote on a Tuesday, instead of on the weekend which is usual practice. "I think the reason they are having it on a weekday is to reduce the turnout," he said. "This is a deliberate action to inconvenience the voters. We condemn the Election Commission for their decision." "We fear there could be rigging. We urge our supporters not to be complacent, it is going to be a tough battle but we are confident of victory," he said. -AFP/vm
