Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak today urged voters in Simanggang, to not 'sell' their rights for money but retain their votes as a priced possession, that can be used to decide their future.
He said votes are the rights of the people to determine their future, and the voters must think of long term development in their areas, and not look for short term gains by selling their votes to those willing to offer money.
The premier said this in his speech, during a visit to the Jegai Anak Jawa Long House in Kampung Purai, an Iban village in Undop.
Earlier, BN candidate for Simanggang, Datuk Francis Harden Hollis, who is also the incumbent, had claimed that he received information that voters were being paid not to vote for BN in the May 7th polls.
He claimed that RM100 was offered to voters before going to the polls and another 200 was promised if the BN candidate lost the seat.
