Najib hopes for friendly contest between PAS and Umno
LABIS: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak hopes for a friendly contest between PAS and Umno in the Manek Urai by-election.
He said that both sides should not be involved in insults or mudslinging.
Both parties should just convey their agendas to the voters and let them decide, Najib said, adding that Barisan would do its best in the by-election.
He added that Barisan was committed to campaigning in a clean manner with the election machinery being supervised by Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyddin Yassin and directed by Datuk Mustapa Mohamad.
“We have a new method to move our election machinery. Also our candidate is getting encouraging response based on his background and presently there are also no major issues in this by-election,” Najib said, adding that Barisan was promising change and a new era for the people of Manek Urai.
He was speaking to reporters after launching the Felda settlers day celebrations in Felda Maokil here Tuesday.
