MACC deputy chief commissioner (Operation) Datuk Seri Azam Baki said the task force would monitor and take action on offences stipulated under the Election Act 1954.

"For this coming election, MACC will form a task force to monitor the election. We will monitor issues raise by any parties on (alleged) corruption and power abuse,” he told a media conference here today.

The media conference was held after the acceptance of duty by the new Sarawak MACC director Razim Mohd Noor.

In another development, Azam said individuals from a few more companies would be called in the probe on the land scandal in Mukim Ijok, Selangor,

"We need more time because the MACC officers are conducting a forensic analysis of several accounts of the companies concerned.

“We have called the accountants and directors of five companies, but no arrest has been made yet,’ he said.
