KUALA SELANGOR - Pakatan Harapan (PH) candidate for Permatang state seat, Mohd Yahya Mat Sahri, expressed concern over four banners displaying Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim that had been defaced by irresponsible individuals.

He condemned these acts of provocation, which he believes were intended to stir up public sentiment.

Mohd Yahya who is representing PKR, stressed that the Prime Minister's image should be respected, as he is the national leader chosen to lead the country through the democratic process.

"Disrespecting the Prime Minister equates to disrespecting the monarchy, which contradicts the second Rukun Negara principle of loyalty to the King and country, as stated in the national constitution," he said.

The PKR candidate identified three locations where the banners were vandalised, including Jalan Raja Musa, Kampung Sungai Gulang-Gulang, and Parit Serong.

He called for an immediate halt to such acts throughout the Selangor poll campaign.

Yahya acknowledged that differences in understanding and support exist in political campaigns but stressed that provocative actions should not be tolerated.

He reminded the public that the banners depicted the Prime Minister, a leader deserving of respect, not a rockstar.
