The Slim by-election last weekend was marred by corruption as Perikatan Nasional bribed voters to win, said former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad today.

Speaking to the press at the Perdana Leadership Foundation in Putrajaya, Dr Mahathir said he saw pictures of the alleged corruption.

“In Slim, we know a lot of money was used. It was very cleverly done. They brought a van to help bring voters to the polling centres. Inside the van, money was given. 

“What they did was, they (voters) would take pictures (showing) that they voted for BN and they would receive the money inside the bus or van after voting.

“Maybe before voting they get RM100, after showing proof, they get another RM50. This was told to us. There are pictures of the incident,” he said this morning.
