A PKR organiser in Belaga complained that on the nomination day his applications for police permit to hold ceramah(political talk) was met with numerous harassment from the police. Such applications is rather routine procedure-but the organiser alleged that the police come back to him 3 time s to inquire about the applications details -which is quite out of the ordinary. He consider the extra inquisitiveness of the police as an election induced action aimed at harassing the party organisers. Police permits are needed for all campaign activities even though by law all competing candidates /parties are supposedly `free’ to hold political talks during elections. By normal practice police would approve such permit more freely during election period-but complaints of harassment is never absent in all elections till now.
