Report complaints

Nasik Swami
Tuesday, April 01, 2014

THOSE members of the public who feel that taxpayers' money are wrongly being used for campaigns by some government ministers can lodge an official complaint with the police.

That is the message from Electoral Commission chairman Chen Bunn Young following concerns by political parties and some members of the public that recently, some ministers have been using State resources to campaign.

"The Electoral Commission is the not the recipient of the complaints," Mr Young said.

"We actually do not have any authority to deal with complaints. The second point is that if there are basis for complaints, it should be laid with the appropriate authorities.

"An offence is an offence and it is a criminal offence, then the first place to stop is actually to lodge a complaint like any other complaints for the criminal offence and that is with the police."

Some of the concerns raised to this newspaper from political parties included the use of government vehicles and venues to campaign.
