KOTA BELUD – UMNO treasurer Datuk Seri Dr Salleh Said Keruak has expressed confidence that the support of the people for Barisan Nasional (BN) throughout Sabah remained solid.
The Communications and Multimedia Minister, who is also BN candidate for the Kota Belud parliamentary seat, said BN machinery in all constituencies in Sabah should not sit still and must continue to work hard to ensure a bigger victory for the coalition.
”I have the opportunity to visit districts in the state to see the overall development of BN in Sabah…and I can see that the people’s support for BN is still good. As such, I’m sure that we will be able to achieve victory in the 14th general election (GE14),” he told reporters after meeting with Chinese voters in Kampung Tombol here today.
Salleh said the support of the Chinese community for BN in Kota Belud was getting stronger as they (the Chinese community) were now more aware and understood that only the BN government was able to ensure the development in this district continued to be implemented.
”I am happy because today we can see that not only elderly voters are supporting us but we also have the support of young people among the Chinese community,” he added.
As such, Selleh called on all BN machinery in the Kota Belud parliamentary constituency to continue to double their strength and ensure that BN supporters come out early to cast their vote this Wednesday.
”We have to make sure that BN voters go out early to fulfill their responsibility and express their strong support for the ruling party,” he added.
Meanwhile, commenting on his walkabout at Tamu Minggu Kota Belud this morning, Salleh said he understood the discomfort experienced by traders at the market which was currently undergoing upgrading work.
”I will ask the district office to ensure that the temporary site for the market can provide comfort (to traders).
”There is a lot that needs to be repaired and I will discuss with the Kota Belud District Council to ensure comfort of the area as the market is important to many traders…at the market, they earn their living and we, as the ruling government, will determine the convenience of the traders,” he said. – BERNAMA
