KOTA KINABALU: Umno Youth has a huge responsibility in ensuring that the support of youth do not waver in view of the formation of a new Opposition party led by former Umno leader Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal.
Its chief Khairy Jamaluddin said any new party that had been formed should be taken seriously.
“Efforts need to be doubled to retain public confidence and support for Barisan Nasional parties,” he said.
“Umno youth takes this matter seriously and is not underestimating what this new party can do,” he added after handing over a cheque for the state level National Sports Day at the Menggatal community hall near here yesterday.
“I always tell our youth leaders that they need to ensure that existing supporters continue for Barisan and that the coalition stays as the choice for people in Sabah,” Khairy said.
Khairy said he did not want to see Sabah fall into instability due to the wrong choices made.
“We want Sabah to continue enjoying development from the stable political scenario felt right now,” he added.
