SHAH ALAM - The credibility of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and the Election Commission (EC) has come under scrutiny as allegations arise that the government is openly distributing bribes to the people without facing any repercussions.

Bersatu youth chief Wan Ahmad Fayhsal Wan Ahmad Kamal expressed his dissatisfaction with the lack of action taken when both the Pakatan Harapan (PH) and Barisan Nasional (BN) conducted programmes to distribute goods openly during the by-election campaign for the Pelangai State Legislative Assembly.

"I swear, I don't understand why when they, namely PH-BN, organise programmes and openly distribute goods during the campaign period, there is no drastic action from the authorities such as the MACC and EC regarding attempts to bribe voters.

"When their side plays the 3R [races, religion, royal institutions], the Religious Affairs Minister merely advises, while police reports from the Perikatan Nasional Youth are piling up!" he said in a Facebook post on Thursday.

He further emphasised his point by sharing a one-minute and 17-second video showing potential voters in Pelangai receiving free locally produced rice in the campaign area.

"When I label this as political hypocrisy, many express their anger, but if it's not hypocrisy, then what is it? A charitable act? This is a clear case of selective enforcement of the law! It's almost as if they're boasting, 'We're in power; this is our government,'" he added.
