With only one day left to the 14th General Election (GE14), Dato’ Sri Najib Razak expressed his confidence that Barisan Nasional (BN) can win the upcoming general election by a wide margin!
On May 5, Najib explained at the “Meet-the-People” session in Peramu Jaya that his confidence was founder on the briefings from UMNO leaders in each location they have campaigned in around the country since nomination day, on April 28.

Najib also described the scene at a BN talk in Sungai Siput as ‘so crowded that there were not enough chairs for the people to sit’. He told reporters:
“Even the aisles were filled with supporters and I was told that we had a good chance of wresting the Sungai Siput parliamentary seat from the opposition.
“Insya Allah, if this happens we can win big provided that we can defend the seats that are already in our hands.”

On the subject of the opposition’s tactics, Najib said that he is unbothered by the fake news on social media intended to portray the opposition as receiving widespread support.
Bernama quoted Najib as saying,
“I was made to understand that they brought outsiders (to such talks) and later took pictures and uploaded them on social media (portraying) a show of strength. This is their tactic.”

He ended his speech assuring the crowd,
“We don’t use such tactics. We just use local voters. That is how we gauge our strength. In fact, we have the strength of the local (supporters).”
Whatever it is, let us do duty as Malaysian citizens and vote in GE14 for a better Malaysia! Don’t let anyone influence your choice, it is your decision and yours alone!
