SERI SETIA POLLS | Pakatan Harapan candidate Halimey Abu Bakar has denied his opponent’s claims that he used Selangor government machinery to campaign in the Seri Setia state by-election.
Halimey also stressed that he has not given out any donations or goods to anyone.
“I did not give anything (in cash or kind) to anyone. You can check,” he said at his daily media conference ain Pangsapuri Seri Jati in Petaling Jaya today.
The Harapan candidate was commenting on the statement made by PAS candidate Dr Halimah Ali yesterday, claiming that she had seen for herself state government machinery being used for Halimey’s campaign in PJS 6 and Desa Mentari yesterday.
Halimey admitted, however, that Petaling Jaya MP Maria Chin Abdullah may have given items or donations to the constituents of Seri Setia.
“If Maria actually did give out donations or goods, there is no problem because she is the MP. As the candidate, I am not allowed to give anything,” he said.
Halimey is facing Halimah in a straight in the Sept 8 by-election which is being held following the death of its incumbent, Shaharuddin Badaruddin from colon cancer on Aug 2.
