The Election Commission (EC) has taken down a billboard, which implied that Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng threatened Sandakan voters by saying he would not address the issue of insufficient parking bays at the Sandakan Hospital should the DAP's candidate lose in the May 11 polls.

The Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) billboard depicted a screenshot from Astro AEC’s Mandarin news, with a Chinese headline which translates to “Insufficient parking lots in Sandakan hospital; Lim: If we win, then find me. If we lose, there’s nothing I can do”.

DAP publicity secretary Phoong Jin Zhe said a police report was lodged because Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng’s remarks was taken out of context.
