BN Also Getting Support Of Urban Voters - Najib

Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak wants voters in the Federal Territory to ensure Barisan Nasional (BN) is no longer labelled as a rural party by giving an absolute vcitory to all BN candidates on Sunday.

The Prime Minister said the extraordinary support of the people in the Klang Valley, including in Setiawangsa, seemed to give a clear sign that BN was also a party which received the support of the urban people.

"I see BN flags and they wear BN shirts every where and your presence tonight gives the message that our party is also accepted by the people in the urban areas.

"So, I want you to ensure all BN candidates are victorious because I do not want to listen any more to people regarding BN as a rural party, which is only supported by village communities," he said when speaking at a 1Malaysia People's Gathering with the Prime Minister at the Setiawangsa mini stadium, here, Friday night.

Also present was BN's Setiawangsa Parliamentary candidate Datuk Ahmad Fauzi Zahari, Datuk Johari Abdul Ghani (Titiwangsa) and Datuk Shafie Abdullah (Wangsa Maju).

The BN chairman said, despite his tight schedule prior to the final campaigning day tomorrow night, his presence in Setiawangsa was to ensure the three candidates won in their contested seats, simultaneously redeeming the Titiwangsa and Wangsa maju seats which went to the opposition in 2008.

Najib said wins in seats in the Federal Territory would hinder the aspiration of Pakatan Rakyat which was seen as uniting only to topple and replace BN as the government, whilst the PAS-PKR-DAP coalition did not have a clear direction to develop the nation.

The Prime Minister said the opposition pact lacked credibility to be picked because the union built was false as understanding did not exist in the coalition where small matters such as selection and placing of candidates could not be made in an orderly manner triggering clashes among themselves in certain areas, not including the fear of forming a shadow cabinet if they ruled.

"We cannot have a contradicting policy and ideology if we aspire to rule the country with credibility, and in BN, we are clear, if we win, who and which party's candidate will become Prime Minister.

"How are they to divide the seats in the cabinet to be formed if even on the question of candidates they are not capable of solving, so let us not gamble the fate of the young people by picking a party with a lineup of leaders who have no credibility to administer the nation," he said.

Najib said voters must understand that the next five years was a very critical period in the history of national development.

He said it was important because the next five years would be the decider as to how far the vision to turn Malaysia into a developed, high income nation, with dignity and respected by many, could become a reality or otherwise.

"During the period, if we pick BN, as BN chairman, I can give my assurance to the people, that we can achieve the developed nation status that we aspire," he said.

In this regard, the Prime Minister reminded voters not to be influenced with the slogan 'change' bandied about by the opposition pact because the changes carried out by the BN government was still ongoing with the support of the people compared to the change, which had yet to be ascertained, as promised by the opposition.

"As such, when someone voices the slogan 'change' people will respond with the reply 'next time, not this time, never' to show the people still gave their trust to the BN government to head the change towards national progress," he added.
