BUKIT MERTAJAM: It is up to the local authorities and not the police to take action against overzealous candidates who have started putting up posters before nominations, Deputy Internal Security Minister Datuk Mohd Johari Baharum said.�

Based on the Election Commission guidelines, posters, billboards and structures of political parties could only be put up after nominations, he said. �

“If the local authorities want to take action, they can do so. It is up to them to enforce. �

“But after the elections and the votes are counted, all parties must take down the posters. If they do not, their deposit would be used to clear all the flags, posters and structures hung,” he told newsmen Tuesday at the Central Seberang Prai police headquarters here. �

In the press conference, Johari reiterated that all gatherings, talks and events would need a permit from the police. �
