JOHOR BAHRU – Johor Barisan Nasional (BN) will ensure that potential candidates to be fielded in the 14th General Election (GE14) will not only win seats but also resolve issues pertaining to the problems of the people.
Johor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin, who is also Johor BN chairman, said the approach was different from the opposition who only wanted to win seas and harp on national issues.
“We realise that the cost of living is rising and this problem is not only experienced in our country but also in other countries.
“Hence the government continues to carry out intervention approach to resolve problems when tackling issues faced by the people, among them to introduce the Johor Era programme so that the people can generate more income and have subsidised bus fares and free education,” he said.
He told reporters this after attending the Excellence Awards presentation and Sekolah Kebangsaan Taman Scientex PTA annual meeting in Pasir Gudang, here today.
Mohamed Khaled was commenting on the Pakatan Harapan’s intention to field big names in Johor in the coming GE, namely Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Nurul Izzah Anwar.
Meanwhile he denied various assumptions and findings of certain quarters such as the recent Merdeka Centre report that claimed the Johor BN’s position was skaky.
Earlier he announced an aid of RM200,000 from the state government to build the school’s open hall. – BERNAMA
