The police charge upwards of Rm5mil to provide security to 1 by-election. So there are 71 elections to be held at the state elections-so their budget can go upwards of Rm5mil X 71 =Rm355mil. Is the police feeling that they are charging too much to the government/tax payers for `covering’ just peaceful elections? If not why are they so shy to reveal the amount involved and let the public decide if the amount is about right? In comparison the EC charge 50mil for organising the entire state election-well below RM1mil/constituency.
