They came in droves for the dinner bash last night at Kampung Sepetang, Taiping, and the crowd of about 1,500 were definitely hooked.
The bait was simply irresistible. Nope. It was not the delectable spread of steam fish and herbal chicken but rather three scantily clad women.
It is a dinner organised by Barisan Nasional to lure votes for the upcoming Bukit Gantang parliamentary by-election, where Chinese support is crucial.
Donning BN-blue tank-tops, hot pants with 'fishnet' stockings and boots, the girls sizzled the inhabitants of the Kampung Baru Sepetang fishing village.
Among the top leaders enjoying the show was Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, the newly-elected Umno vice-president and Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department in-charge of Islamic affairs.
Also present at the dinner was BN candidate for Bukit Gantang Ismail Saffian.
When questioned whether such performances would translate into votes for BN, Ahmad Zahid said that they were a "part of the Chinese culture".
Zahid said: "We also respect Chinese customs. In fact, we should respect the customs of all races."
"For example, only 20 percent of the voters in my constituency are Chinese. However, I still visit Chinese temples and attend Chinese funerals," he said.
"By using women to lure voters, she said, BN government is enabling and encouraging a sexist culture," Selangor Community Awareness Association (Empower)president Maria Chin Abdullah said in a statement today.

I agree this is very much a Chinese culture. I applaud Ahmad Zahid Hamidi for showing such great respect and admiration for our Chinese culture.
I think Gambling is also Chinese culture.
Playing with Fire crackers, particularly during the Chinese New year is surely part of Chinese culture.
Lion dance is also Chinese culture.
Prostituting and prostitute may be be considered a Chinese culture too, but asinine and saifulling is surely NOT Chinese culture.
The new Umno leaders seem to be very considerate to Chinese culture!!!
