KT’s decorative touch

WHAT’S an election campaign without a poster and banner war?

As expected, the Barisan Nasional (BN) and Pakatan Rakyat have gone all out to decorate Kuala Terengganu with posters, banners and billboards for the parliamentary by-election. Messages reflect the issues of the day, such as oil royalty, racial relations and hudud.

There are attempts to depict BN candidate Datuk Wan Ahmad Farid Wan Salleh as a politician who is close to the people, while PAS tries to demonstrate that it respects different races and religions.

Polling day is on 17 Jan 2009.

    It’s probably typically southeast Asian culture to have elections like a major fiesta of sorts with all the posters and fanfare. It could be chaotic, but hey, it’s home, right?

    Anwar Ibrahim = Daniel Craig?
