Our observer has done a good job to inspect Bkt Gantang this lunchtime after EC announced the by-election in the Parliamentary constituency. She reported that Bkt Gantang contains 3 State constituencies: Changkat Jerling, Simpang and Sepetang. She was unhappy that even before campaign is allowed to start UMNO & BN flags are visible along Simpang-Taiping Rd! This is a clear violation of the conventional election campaign rule as made by the EC!
She found that Simpang town would be a central location for observing the Parliamentary constituency.
