Sarawak DAP has lodged a police report over the unauthorised use of party flags around the state capital Kuching.
“We don’t want the Election Commission or Barisan Nasional to have any excuse to take any legal action against the party,” Chong Chieng Jen, the DAP state chairman, said after lodging the report today. It is an offence under election laws to raise party flags in public places outside the campaigning period.
Chong said party leaders had not authorised the use of the flags.
