KAPIT, April 15 (Bernama) — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak today reminded voters in Sarawak not to vote based on sentiments in the state election tomorrow.
“Don’t vote based on sentiments and issues involved, we need a government that is able to bring progress,” he told reporters after opening the Kapit Express Passenger Terminal here.
He said the polls tomorrow was about the future of Sarawak, the quality of life of its people and bequeathing a good future to their children.
“The question that needs to be thought over by Sarawak voters is the cooperation between the federal and state governments for a better future because Sarawak is a very big state which needs huge investments particularly in modern infrastructure,” he said.
He added:”This is an important question. Who can deliver, not just sloganeering or rhetoric or campaigns that attack a person’s character.”
Touching on urban voters who are reported to be more pro-opposition, Najib said voters should realise that the cooperation among parties in the opposition coalition was rather frigile and that they would not be able to deliver the goods.
“It is not a viable alternative (compared to BN),” he said in this last stop of his visit to Sarawak since he arrived in Kuching on Tuesday.
On the Barisan Nasional’s machinery, Najib who is also the coalition’s national chairman, said he was satisfied with the machinery’s performance but cautioned that its members must “work until the final second”.
“I have to remind the BN workers that they facing a tougher challenge this time compared to the last state election,” he added.
