THEY say a picture is worth a thousand words. In Hulu Selangor, if a poster is worth a 1,000 votes, Barisan Nasional (BN) would win the by-election hands down. The BN has literally “gone to town” with their campaign posters. Over a dozen different poster designs proclaim the wonders of the BN government in this parliamentary constituency.
Some of these BN posters have even attacked Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) leaders directly. PKR Youth members have been incensed enough to take matters into their own hands by destroying these posters. Several arrests were made as a result.
In comparison, Pakatan Rakyat only has a handful of different posters for this by-election. Notwithstanding how effective posters will be in determining the victor on polling day on 25 April 2010, the number of posters clearly demonstrates which coalition has deeper pockets.
