Malaysiakini accused of twisting Zahid’s statement, but here’s the audio recording

Parti Cinta Malaysia (PCM) deputy president Huan Cheng Guan has accused Malaysiakini of twisting caretaker deputy prime minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s statement.

On April 13, Malaysiakini quoted Zahid as saying that Malaysians working in Singapore need not return to vote in the 14th general election (GE14) if they can’t get leave on May 9.

Accusing the news portal of being “rude (biadap)”, the PCM leader urged the police and the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) to act against the news portal.

In a statement forwarded by the Special Affairs Department (Jasa), Huan said the article titled “Best not to vote if you can’t get leave, Zahid tells M’sians in S’pore” gives the impression that the government does not encourage Malaysians working in Singapore to return to vote.
