Victory in Hulu Selangor indicates people’s confidence in BN, says Muhyiddin

Barisan Nasional’s (BN) triumph in the Hulu Selangor by-election indicates the people’s confidence in the BN leadership, says Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

“The win shows the people trust BN and is the result of its hard work in convincing the voters to vote for BN.

“It also shows the prime minister’s (Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak) good relationship with the people. They accepted his explanations on national issues.

This is a good sign for BN,” he said when met after the announcement of the by-election results in Kuala Kubu Baharu, here, tonight.

In the parliamentary seat by-election, BN’s P.Kamalanathan defeated Datuk Zaid Ibrahim from Parti Keadilan Rakyat with a 1,725-vote majority. He secured 24,997 votes against Zaid’s 23,272 votes.

Information Communication and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Rais Yatim said the win showed the people were ready to accept and imbibe the 1Malaysia concept introduced by the prime minister.

“This is the sacred voice of the people of Hulu Selangor. It shows his (prime miniter’s) ideas are accepted by them,” he said.

Umno information chief Datuk Ahmad Maslan said among the factors that contributed to BN’s victory was its well-organised and united by-election machinery with no tense situation created throughout the campaign period.

“BN’s victory is the fruit of labour of various quarters including the election machinery in their campaign in every part of the constituency.

“I thank all the speakers at the BN ‘ceramah’ (talks), and the ministers and deputy ministers who ‘turun padang’ (went to the ground), thus contributing to BN’s win in the by-election,” he told Bernama through SMS tonight.

Hulu Selangor’s racial composition itself portrayed 1Malaysia, with 53 per cent of the voters comprising Malays, 26 per cent Chinese, 19 per cent Indians, and the rest included the Orang Asli, he said.

Ahmad also thanked the voters of Hulu Selanghor for giving victory to BN by choosing its candidate to represent them.
