BANGI: Pakatan Harapan’s (PH) red flags for the first time were hoisted outside the nomination centres for the Balakong and Seri Setia by-elections on Saturday morning.

Also setting a first was MCA, which after many general elections of contesting under the familiar blue and white Barisan Nasional symbol, now has its own flag on display in the hands of party supporters outside the Balakong by-election nomination centre at the Hulu Langat District Office.

Outside the Balakong nomination centre since 8am this morning, over a hundred supporters of both PH and MCA supporters, bearing their respective party flags, gathered separately, watched closely by uniformed policemen.

While MCA supporters held up their yellow star party flag, PH supporters hoisted the white and red Pakatan Harapan flags under the hot morning sun.

Having been forced to rely on PH component PKR’s blue party logo during the 14th General Election, Saturday marks the first time that the red PH logo has appeared in a by-election.

The PH red flags were also visible among its supporters near the Seri Setia by-election nomination at the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) Civic Centre, Petaling Jaya, Satursday morning. © New Straits Times Press (M) Bhd
