EC de­nies in­volve­ment

New Straits Times - - News | Politics -

PUTRAJAYA: The Elec­tion Com­mis­sion (EC) has de­nied in­volve­ment in the pro­duc­tion of a “sedi­tious” man­darin-lan­guage video clip on a voter reg­is­tra­tion drive for the 14th Gen­eral Elec­tion.

EC chair­man Datuk Seri Mohd Hashim Ab­dul­lah yes­ter­day said the use of the EC logo at the end of the clip had led to con­fu­sion among the pub­lic.

He said EC would not hes­i­tate to take le­gal ac­tion if the logo was used with­out per­mis­sion as it could mar the com­mis­sion’s im­age.

“The EC warns those in­volved not to use the agency’s logo for any pro­duc­tion or cam­paign with­out per­mis­sion.”

He said the video, which lasted one minute and 40 sec­onds, was sedi­tious in tone and could in­cite ha­tred to­wards cer­tain par­ties.
