As today is voting day, Malaysians are heading to polling centres in several states to cast their ballots.
However, things seem to have not gone smoothly in certain places.
China Press reported that before voting could officially kick-off, a verbal argument broke out between an old man and another voter who had lined up more than an hour before.
According to the Chinese daily, the altercation took place at a polling centre located at SK Padang Tembak in Penang.
The old man, dressed in an orange polo t-shirt, had arrived at 7:45am and allegedly jumped the queue as he wasn’t willing to wait at the back of the line.
He was then confronted by another voter in a grey t-shirt who confronted him for cutting the queue as he and the others had been lining up since 6 am.
The old man didn’t even apologise or show any intention of getting back in line and even defended his actions by saying that his feet were in pain.
As the atmosphere grew tense, another man dressed in a police vest stepped in and tried to defuse the situation.
It is unclear what occurred afterward.
