BN does not fear anyone: Muhyiddin

KUALA LUMPUR, 23 April 2009: The Barisan Nasional (BN) does not fear anyone in facing a by-election, said Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

“We have never feared anyone. This question of elections is a normal matter to be faced. Winning and losing is customary in contesting and we will continue to face this,” Muhyiddin, who is also the Education Minister, told reporters after visiting Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Setapak Indah here.

He was commenting on a statement by Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) strategy director Saifuddin Nasution Ismail that the BN was reluctant to contest in the Penanti state constituency by election in Penang as it was the underdog.

Muhyiddin, who is also BN deputy chairperson, however said the matter of contesting or not had not been decided.

He said the Umno supreme council meeting tomorrow will discuss the matter and that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak will also seek feedback from leaders of BN component parties.

Asked if there would be changes in Umno leadership in tomorrow’s meeting, Muhyiddin said: “The president will announce. Surely there will be changes as after elections, as usually done, there will be changes and renewal.

“What is important is that we strengthen our party. All this is to make our party’s performance better and stronger.”

On the issue of Umno’s leadership in Terengganu, Muhyiddin said he and the prime minister had understood the situation there after recently meeting leaders from the state.

“The president and I know what needs to be done to strengthen leadership there. If there are problems we do not wish to discuss in the open and we will resolve the problems as soon as possible.

“What is important is for party leaders and people’s representatives to give attention to the people’s welfare and interests,” he said. — Bernama

    Nobody wants you to fear them. All we want is respect. You respect us, we vote for you. Respect must be earned. Too thick to understand?

    “What is important is for party leaders and people’s representatives to give attention to the people’s welfare and interests,” as was said by Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

    What he is actually saying is – only Umno/BN leaders, family members, cronies, lackeys, hangers on, goons, thugs, Umno Youth Wing interests and welfare will be look after.
    The rest are slaves to be used and discarded. The Rakyat has awakened to Umno/BN’s evil, discredited racial policies. The Rakyat will not be seduce by their spins and empty promises. Why? Because they are not sincere.
