Some 100 people, including Betty Chew, the wife of DAP secretary general Lim Guan Eng, gathered at the Kuan Yin pavilion at Kek Lok Si Temple in Air Itam here on Friday to shave their heads in protest against money politics.
The group included DAP leaders and candidates, along with supporters.
Among the DAP candidates to have their heads shaved were Phee Boon Poh, Wong Hon Wai, Jagdeep Singh Deo, Teh Yee Cheu and Yap Soo Huey.
The former assemblymen to shave their heads were Koid Teng Guan and Datuk Wong Hang Yoke.
Lim was present to show his support but did not have his head shaved.
Sixteen hairstylists from two hair salons were present to shave the protestors' heads.
Chew said the protest, organised by a group of DAP supporters, was held to spread the awareness of money politics.
"I decided to shave too as it is for a good cause.
"You will get something free today but you may have to pay back for something tomorrow," she said.
