SHAH ALAM: The Barisan Nasional (BN) is with the opinion that with the appointment of Tan Sri Noh Omar as the Minister of Entrepreneur Development and Cooperative (KUSKOP), Selangor could be seized from Pakatan Harapan (PH) stronghold in the coming 15th General Election (GE).
Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said, when BN takes over the government, a lot of things could be done to help the people and UMNO is there to help.
“We did many impossible things even when we were not in the government and now in the government of course many more things we could help the people.
“However our own people are not supporting us. I pray so that the spirit we have today will enable us to bring down the Selangor State Government just like their wish to demolish the Shah Alam Stadium.
“We want Selangor to win and if we want to win we cannot just rely on emotion but must be based on facts. Our basis must be strong and the supporting facts should be clear.
“Starting today we should attack the opposition and not attack among ourselves,” Ismail said at the Selangor BN Convention held at the Setia City Convention Centre here today.
The Prime Minister then cited in 2008 BN had lost in Selangor. In 2004, out of 54 seats only 20 seats were secured in the State Legislative Assembly (DUN) In the 13th GE smaller number of seats were secured. In the 14th GE, BN only won four DUN seatrs namely Hulu Bernam, Sungai Air Tawar, Sungai Burong and Sungai Panjang before an additional seat was secured at the (DUN) Semenyih by- election.
“This time we say we will win again. However we should have the fact and as such we should have a study on the attitude to know the strength of the enemies. We do not want to lose again and there are people who have compared the PH Government and will not give the second chance to them.
“I hope the study on attitude will be implemented by all component parties including MIC and MCA like what Wanita UMNO had done. In Bera, the MCA and MIC had done the study on attitude.
“Probably this is the first time for MCAand MIC to do that but if half could be done then it is enough to make an evaluation. I hope Wanita Selangor will have a clear formula to start with the attitude study,” Ismail reiterated.
According to Ismail now it is certain that the 15th GE will be held first before the party election whether this year or next year.
“However, my worry is some will not be able to stand for the election and I hope they will not be “sulkish” but that is a normal thing to happen but just do not sabortage others who stand for election because what is important is the party Barisan Nasional.
“I hope this issue is clear because many cases like this had happened in Selangor as the struggle is very big as the PH had been in power for the past three terms,” Ismail said.
In another development Ismail said, the world has seen and evaluated Malaysia is much better now as the country have the strong basis.
However people seem to deny the world’s evaluation to the extent they waste time thinking and discussing the bad sides and forgetting about their strength.
“This is because everybody had been trapped with the perception that had been brought by the Opposition until we became the mouth piece of the Opposition to humiliate the country.
“We must agree what Tan Sri Noh had said, let people make comparison between the BN Government, Pakatan Harapan (PH) and Perikatan Nasional (PN) before the General Election.” Ismail said. –Malaysia World News
