PORT DICKSON, Oct 11 (Bernama) — The big win by the Barisan Nasional (BN) in Bagan Pinang shows that the BN has regained the support of all races, said the BN candidate Tan Sri Mohd Isa Abdul Samad.
The 1Malaysia concept, ‘People First, Performance Now’ introduced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Abdul Razak, was the main factor for the success as it succeeded in drawing the support of all races for the BN, he said.
“This is a good sign that the people are supporting the BN government under the leadership of Najib and Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin. Only the BN government can provide good governance for the country.
“I’m thankful to the Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Minister, Cabinet Ministers, Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan as well as party leaders who had worked hard for the by-election,” he told reporters, here on Sunday night.
Mohd Isa retained the Bagan Pinang state seat for the BN in the by-election after beating the PAS candidate, Zulkefly Mohamad Omar with a majority of 5,435 votes.
Mohd Isa garnered 8,013 votes while Zulkefly received only 2,578 votes.
