TELUK INTAN, Perak, Malaysia — The dissemination of posters featuring DAP’s Dyana Sofya Mohd Daud alongside a bikini-clad actress with whom she shares a striking facial resemblance has drawn outrage from several Malay residents in this usually placid town, recently.
The photograph of Filipina actress Pauleen Luna, which was passed off as an image of the DAP hopeful, first emerged on the Internet when the 26-year-old lawyer was named for the May 31 race.
The A4-sized poster sighted by the Malay Mail Online was printed in colour and did not bear any party logo or emblem.
Two days ago, physical copies appeared in two Malay villages here, local PAS leaders said.
- “It’s not good; it’s akin to character assassination,” Abdul Muin Basukey, a 42-year-old welder who lives in Kampung Selabak, told the Malay Mail Online.
- “Even if you don’t support her, you shouldn’t run her down like that,” he added.
PAS’ Teluk Intan campaign deputy director Salman Saleh, who is helping the DAP (oposition party)on its blitz coverage in the Malay-majority Changkat Jong area, said dozens of copies of the posters were found strewn on the roads in Kampung Selabak and Batak Rabit on last Thursday and yesterday.
