Keadilan Daily reported that Tian Chua said that the date is the final round for campaign staff to collect letters opposing the DBKL assessment tax and will be submitted directly to his headquarters at Jalan Raja Laut.

“Anyone who has yet to fill out the letter of protest prior to this can fill it at the said time,” he said.
