Tell us these are not vote buying

TELL US THESE ARE NOT VOTE BUYING. The Election Commision tell us that it is an offence to buy votes. One is not allowed to make monetary promises when soliciting for votes, so they say but who cares when the big gun does it. The EC has never bothered, nor lifted an eye and the immoral practise is being done out in the open.

PAS was once accused of corrupt practices by allegedly promising voters that a vote for PAS is a ticket to heaven. But when free food, gifts and cash are openly distributed to voters, it suddenly becomes OK.....are we really in democratic Malaysia or Zimbabwe?
