Barisan Nasional candidate for the Kuala Terengganu by-election voters should vote for Datuk Wan Ahmad Farid as he will be re-appointed as Deputy Minister if he wins promised Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
“If they vote for the PAS candidate, he cannot be a deputy minister,” he said when launching the BN election machinery for the by-election at the Islamic Civilisation Park here Monday night, Bernama reports.
As such, he said voters should exercise their wisdom if they wanted the constituency to be represented by a federal-level deputy minister.
However former premier Tun Dr Mahathir said “the choice by BN was really very bad because everybody sees him just as a proxy. Someone to be use later on if Najib becomes PM.
