MIRI, May 3 – Barisan Nasional supporters in Sarawak must put their differences aside to offer their undivided support to all candidates to ensure the party win the election with a big majority in the May 7 polls. Minister of Communications and Multimedia Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Salleh Said Keruak urged the people to translate their support through votes for BN candidates on polling day.
“Give your support to no matter who the candidate is, as long as they are under the BN banner. Give them your full support. The opposition was not an alternative party of choice in Sarawak because the opposition cannot administer the state,” he said at a dinner with village heads and community leaders in the Miri parliamentary constituency, Monday night.
“Just look at the current election, the opposition candidates are battling against each other for seats in six constituencies. The opposition is not interested in serving the people but merely fighting against each other to become state assemblymen.,” he said adding that the target of the opposition parties is only to win seats for their own benefit.
Salleh said BN has a strong foundation and structure plus a proven track record to carry out development agendas for the people of Sarawak. Salleh therefore, called on the BN supporters in Miri to continue their campaigns until the last minute to garner as much support as possible and boost the party’s chances of winning.
“We must ensure BN can win all three state seats in Miri, namely Pujut, Piasau and Senadin, with a bigger majority. Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem has brought about major changes and transformation in the administration and policies of the state, and needs a bigger mandate from the people to continue the development agendas,” said Salleh.
