PETALING JAYA, Apr 20 (MySinchew) -- The following are some of the highlights of the 14th general elections for the day:

DAP'S INCUMBENT MEMBERS of Parliament for Tanjung and Jelutong, Ng Wei Aik and Jeff Ooi believe there are signs the BN government will raise the GST rate to 8% after the elections.

Customs director-general has said his department is looking at RM60.96 billion GST collection this year, 39% higher than the RM43.8 billion anticipated under Budget 2018.

Ng said in a press conference this is only possible if GST rate is increased to 8%.

DESPITE THE FACT there is 90% chance an Umno candidate will be fielded in Bandar Tun Razak, MCA insists that its Bandar Tun Razak divisional chairman Datuk Chew Yin Keen should contest the seat.

The party also said there was no reason to swap Wangsa Maju parliamentary seat for it.

DAP'S INCUMBENT MP for Kepong Tan Seng Giaw said during an interview with New Straits Times that he did not agree with Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad that the country would go bankrupt.

He said he was only stating a fact.

"I am now called running dog... What wrong have I done? Is it just because I spoke the truth?"

DAP SECRETARY-GENERAL Lim Guan Eng announced Thursday night in Ipoh the party's candidates for seven parliamentary and 18 state seats in Perak in the upcoming general elections.

State DAP chairman Nga Kor Ming will contest both Teluk Intan parliamentary seat and Aulong state seat.
