New military camp in Sembrong to save BN, says Johor Pakatan

New military camp in Sembrong to save BN, says Johor Pakatan

JOHOR Pakatan Harapan has claimed that Defence Minister Hishammuddin Hussein is misusing his office to transfer military voters to his Sembrong parliamentary constituency.

It said this was being done by building the new Paloh military camp, which, once ready, would house eight squadrons from the Royal Army Engineers Regiment and the 33rd Royal Artillery Regiment, to be moved from Mahkota Camp in Kluang.

The state PH alleged that the transfer of voters was to help Barisan Nasional retain the Paloh state seat, which was won with a slim majority of 103 votes in the 2013 general election.

It called on Hishammuddin to address the matter.

“He must come forward to explain, especially about the planned Paloh camp, which is located in his parliamentary constituency,” it said in a statement today.

The statement was jointly issued by state PH chairman Muhyiddin Yassin, state Bersatu chairman Shahruddin Md Salleh, state Amanah chairman Aminolhuda Hassan, state PKR chairman Hassan Karim and state DAP chairman Liew Chin Tong.

The opposition pact also disputed the government’s assertion that the Paloh camp was being built to defend the country.

“The distance between Mahkota Camp and the planned Paloh camp is less than 10km, while (the distance between) Batu 3 Camp and the Paloh camp is only around 5km.

“So, the argument that the camp is being built for security reasons is questionable.”

On December 21, Liew had said the Paloh camp was expected to add 10% more voters in Sembrong.

In October, DAP had found that there were 1,051 voters registered at a yet-to-be-completed military camp in Segamat, Johor, and 28 others at Regiment 501 Territorial Army Camp Segamat.

On November 7, Mengkibol assemblyman Tan Hong Pin had said more than 1,000 objections had been filed with the Johor Election Commission to stop military personnel from being registered as voters in Segamat. – January 1, 2018.
