Zahid Rejects 50-50 Chance Perception

(Bernama) – Umno Vice-President Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi rejected the perception that the Barisan Nasional (BN) only had 50-50 chance of winning back the states currently under the opposition, in the next general election.

He said the perception was merely a product of a political analysis made in random.

“Either BN or opposition, we all want to win. As for BN, we have to intensify our efforts to win the hearts of the people, not only by implementing physical developments, but also by giving aid and assistance, which are always deemed insufficient,” he told reporters after presenting the 1Malaysia People’s Aid (BR1M) to 500 recipients here yesterday.

Ahmad Zahid, who is also Defence Minister and Bagan Datoh Member of Parliament, said BN had to come out with a new approach to win the hearts of the people and get to know the people’s problems regardless of their political beliefs.

He said BN leaders should also emulate the efforts taken by Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak in finding time to meet the people on the ground.

Ahmad Zahid also called on the people not be fall for the lies spread by the opposition who were keen on exploiting issues to achieve their political agendas.
