A few days after the Election Commission announced the nomination and polling dates, quick as a lightning, many political banners were seen sprouting up in Penang, particularly in the Georgetown area.
Among the small political parties is Parti Cinta Malaysia (PCM) which, surprisingly placed some banners along the busy Penang road.
The 1Malaysia NGO banner was seen to line the streets.
1Malaysia is an NGO aligned to the current ruling coalition Barisan Nasional (BN).
Indeed, their banners show the familiar dark blue, exactly same colour as the BN banner.
