KUALA LUMPUR – The police have identified individuals and organisations with the potential to launch surprise last-minute attacks aimed at creating chaos during the 14th general election to be called soon, Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said today.
The Deputy Prime Minister said such an attack took place during the last general election when it was falsely alleged that 40,000 Bangladeshi nationals had been brought into the country as phantom voters.
Ahmad Zahid, who is also the Home Minister, said that in the run-up to the general election, the police had listed down the individuals and organisations who could cause trouble and the issues that could be used as potential ‘weapons’ to create chaos.
“I know there are people waiting to launch the last-minute attacks. We know who the individuals are. We have identified the blogs which may viral the issues. We have also identified the potential issues that can be used as the last-minute ‘bombs’,” he said at a meet-and-greet session with police personnel here.
Ahmad Zahid warned that action would be taken against any individual or organisation which launched the last-minute attacks. -BERNAMA
