The Electoral Affairs Commission has urged gambling operators not to interfere in the upcoming Macau legislative election in September. Casino operators were warned about this during a meeting with the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau.
According to GGRAsia, the Commission and the Inspection have reported on joint monitoring of the pre-election campaign and casino operators’ activities aimed at gambling operators’ following political neutrality until the election day, on September 17.
According to the norms of the election law approved in 2016, gambling operators can not directly or indirectly influence the course of the election process in the Macau Legislative Assembly. This rule was introduced after receiving a number of complaints from election participants about the alleged interference of gambling operators in the course of the previous election campaign.
