Tanjong Karang MP Tan Sri Noh Omar told reporters on Thursday that he is happy that the police will not be enforcing their requirement for election candidates to obtain permits for walkabouts and door-to-door campaigning.

Earlier, Attorney-General Tommy Thomas clarified that the provisions under which the Election Commission cited the need for a permit have been wrongly cited.
