GE13: Najib - We will undertake national reconciliation

Barisan Nasional chairman Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, who won his first mandate Sunday to lead the country, said the voter polarisation trend was worrying.
"One of the programmes we will undertake is national reconciliation," he added.
Despite the extent of the swing against Barisan, Najib said the coalition did not fall.
"We have got a lot of resilience as a party.
"Not many can claim the kind of support that Barisan has achieved," he said.
Najib said it was a fair and free election and the results should be accepted.
"There's a lot of things we have to as a party.
"We need time to analyse the results so that the appropriate actions can be taken," he said.
Najib also thanked the people for choosing Barisan as their government.
"I also thank the Barisan machinery. The elections went smoothly and were more transparent," he told a press conference at PWTC early Monday.
Najib said a few factors, including less support from the Chinese, prevented Barisan from a bigger win.
"At least, we manage to wrest Kedah back.

Salam. No need for national reconciliation. If its the "Chinese tsunami" being referred to, then it must be put in perspectives. There are Chinese who vote for DAP. But there are also a number of Chinese who put in a "protest" vote, simply because they hate Chua Soi Lek. Ong Tee Kiat is left out, therefore a large chunk of MCA members are intensely unhappy. So, they simply voted out of anger.

MCA has a lot of cleaning up to do. But UMNO must not be big headed, they need MCA for a 2/3 win, next time.

DAP is a Christian party, while MCA is mainly Buddhist party. The Chinese Christians and Chinese Buddhist really don't see eye to eye.
