BN Confident Of Winning Back States Currently Under The Opposition

(Bernama) — Umno Information chief Datuk Ahmad Maslan is confident of Barisan Nasional (BN) winning back Kelantan, Kedah, Selangor and Penang, which are currently under the opposition, in the coming general election.

This, he said, was because the people were now disheartened with PAS, DAP and Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) leaders for failing to keep their promises, including those made in their election manifesto.

“The people are now fed up with the antics of the opposition leaders for making promises, including in Kelantan which has been under Pas for more than 20 years, but have not fulfilled their promises, especially to implement the hudud law,” he told reporters after a meeting with the Kelantan BN information machinery at the Kelantan Umno office here today.

Ahmad said his confidence was based on the current political scenario with many PKR supporters now supporting the BN.

He said the court decision in acquitting PKR adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim from a sodomy charge last week had no effect on the people’s support for BN or Umno.

“BN under Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, who only administers since three years ago, has done a lot for the people.

“This is different from Pas. Although the party has administered Kelantan for more than 20 years, it has not fulfilled its promises, including to implement the hudud law,” he added.

As such, he said, the Umno information machinery should go to the ground and explain to the people on policies implemented by the BN government.
