BN and its component parties are singing the same tune: the parties must work hard and cooperate to win 13th General Elections! However from all past elections the party that work the hardest is the government-or more specifically, its civil servants!The civil servants of 1.4mil is about 10% of Malaysian workforce-all paid for by the tax payers who number less than them!The civil servants make up the number for the BN party events, prepare programs to support the BN’s campaign eg poco-poco; the civil servants allow allocations from their own department to be used for buying votes for BN eg giving away free lap tops to students! civil servants also go as far as accompanying the BN politicians to campaign in the interior area-giving the rural folks that the BN is the party endorsed by the civil servants-including many who serve as the Returning Officers!! Who now work harder than these civil servants before, during and after general elections????
BN Machinery Must Work Hard To Win General Election – Zahid
PANGKOR, Oct 30 (Bernama) – The Barisan Nasional (BN) machinery especially Umno must work hard to retain parliamentary and state seats and regain seats at the next general election.
Umno vice-president Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said the party machinery which embraces the aspirations of BN should plan and implement effective strategies.
He said the bitter events of 2008 general election where BN lost several seats to the opposition was a dark chapter in the party’s history and should not recur.
“There are lessons to be learned from the mistakes so that we become more cautious in future,” he said when closing Bagan Datoh Umno division 1Malaysia Colloquium here Sunday. BN supporters and election machinery should strive to win more than two-thirds majority to facilitate the formation of federal government and state governments.
Zahid who is also Defence Minister said BN has proven its ability to govern the country more efficiently, with transparency and fairness to all races.
