Some 500 Umno members and supporters staged a brief protest outside the Penang state government office in Komtar this afternoon.
The crowd - which gathered there after Friday prayers around 2.30pm - chanted slogans such as 'Don’t sideline the Malays' and 'Do not abolish the NEP'.
Upon being instructed by the police, the crowd dispersed some 15 minutes later. No untoward incidents were reported.
The protest, led by Penang Umno secretary Azhar Ibrahim, to protest Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng's declaration that the new DAP-led state government would do away with the New Economic Policy (NEP) policies.
Earlier today, Inspector-General of Police Musa Hassan had warned that the gathering in Komtar would be declared illegal and arrests would be made against the protestors.
However, no arrests were made this afternoon.
