KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 24 — Police will continue to monitor the situation and are fully prepared to ensure public order and safety in the wake of the latest political developments in the country, said Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Seri Mazlan Lazim.

“The public are advised to respect the laws and the democratic process in the country.

“The police also expect continued cooperation from supporters of political parties and the public to avoid speculation, provocations and dissemination of fake news or false information, especially on racial or religious sensitivities that may affect public order and harmony,” he said in a statement today.

He stressed that police would not hesitate to take decisive action under existing laws against any party found to be trying to disrupt public order.
