The newly minted Umno president Datuk Seri najib Tun Razak warned that the results of Bukit Gantang, Bukit Selambau and Batang Air by-elections may not necessarily be a good indicator of people’s support of BN!
“The trouble of by-election is that it is very hard to say to what extend it reflects the national consideration.
“Of course the pundits will be quick to make conclusion one way or the other… the party members are highly motivated with the challenges ahead and we will do our level best,” he told reporters after the party’s general assembly here today.
He said the by-elections are not a referendum.
“The only referendum is only when the general election comes. You will know whether the people support you or not. By-election may not be necessarily a good indicator,” he said.
He said the newly-elected deputy president, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, would for the first time lead the Barisan Nasional campaign in the three by-elections to be held on April 7.
Huhhh… no wonder he delegated the job to Muhyiddin. He didn’t want to be seen losing in his first month of taking office.
