KLUANG: All candidates in the Johor state elections will be allowed to use government media to introduce themselves, communications and multimedia minister Annuar Musa said today.
He said this was a Cabinet decision so that candidates could be more easily identified.
“We will allow as long as it does not go against the role of official government media channels as they are responsible for conveying information from the government.
“The ones contesting are the parties, nevertheless the government is also responsible for enlivening the democratic process,” he told reporters after presenting appointment letters to Keluarga Malaysia Central Zone community leaders here tonight.
Annuar said political differences would not hinder the goals of establishing the Keluarga Malaysia Community, which he added was to convey information and government policies as well as foster unity among the local community.
