I didn’t say this. NIEI did. That’s short for the National Institue for Electoral Integrity.
Blogger BLACK, who is the executive director of that outfit, alerted me to their just uploaded press statement on the PENANTI nomination day.
They say that:
The situation were different from the previous by-election (Permatang Pauh, Kuala Terengganu, Bukit Gantang and Bukit Selambau) There has been no chanting or shouting nor cheerleaders and there was no ‘war’ of flags for the candidates during the nomination process.
Police presents was seen less this time too. Only a few traffic police personnel was deployed at some junction of the road to handle the traffic. Roadblocks was not set up by the police in Penanti or the wider area of Permatang Pauh.
Only two units of police truck with 12 officers armed with tear gas rifle was deployed outside of the nomination hall.

What has PKR got to say to this?
