The most important element in cash handouts is the intention, said Perikatan Nasional secretary-general Hamzah Zainudin.

The former home minister was responding to PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang defending the distribution of cash to voters during the last 15th general election as “charity”.

“I am not so sure about that (Hadi’s statement). But the point is here when we talk about giving money, it is the intention that is more important,” he told reporters at the sidelines of Gerakan’s Chinese New Year open house in Kuala Lumpur today.

KUALA LUMPUR – Perikatan Nasional (PN) claims to have strong evidence to refute allegations that the coalition had bribed voters in the 15th general election (GE15).

Its secretary-general Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin said the coalition’s defence team was prepared to prove the election petition filed by Terengganu Umno were untrue.

“Of course when they challenge us by making a petition, we will make sure that we have the evidence to prove them wrong. The point is the petition was filed simply because they were dissatisfied.

“Nevertheless, our defence team will ensure that we will win,” he told reporters after attending the PN Chinese New Year Open House at Parti Gerakan Rakyat Malaysia headquarters here today.

Terengganu Umno had earlier this month filed a petition to annul the results for the Kuala Terengganu, Marang and Kemaman parliamentary seats in GE15 which were all won by PAS, a PN component party.

The petition was filed in the Kuala Terengganu High Court on Jan 3 in accordance with the Election Offences Act 1954.—hamzah-zainudin
