I think the real aim is to show how good it can be for Malaysia if Anwar can take Selangor to new heights from what is already a strong position under Khalid. Same for Penang, after seeing what LGE is doing for the state, Penangites are not looking back.

May be it does not want to get into trouble as EC and PDRM may interpret it as early campaigning before the nomination day?
You know our KDN has a very funny way of interpreting the law.
