PUTRAJAYA, Nov 10 (Bernama) — Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said today the term ‘winnable candidate’ used in the 13th general election refers to candidates who can win irrespective of their age or the number of terms they had served as elected representatives.

Acknowledging that the coming general election would be tough, the Prime Minister said what was important was that the individual nominated would be the best candidate for the Barisan Nasional (BN).

“Winnable candidates can refer to anyone, regardless whether he or she is young or old, there is no age limit, there is no limit on the number of times he or she has become an elected representative. The bottom line is that he or she is a winnable candidate.

“It is immaterial if people say he or she is a recycled candidate. Of utmost importance is that he/she is a winnable candidate because we want the BN to win handsomely in the coming general election,” he said when delivering his message at the gathering with members of the Malaysian Council of Former Elected Representatives (Mubarak) at Seri Perdana, here Thursday.

Also present were Mubarak president Datuk Seri Abdul Aziz Rahman and Mubarak information chief who is also Bernama Chairman, Datuk Abdul Rahman Sulaiman.
