Backbone

The opposition is fragile, they do not have the same ideology. In Barisan Nasional, UMNO is the backbone. In the opposition, who is the backbone? Is it PAS, DAP or PKR? PKR is weak, if they come together, DAP boasts more seats. Can the Malays rely on DAP? DAP has never been happy with the position of the Malays and Muslims. Look at Perak’s experience.

Same development

The people of Sarawak and Sabah were promised progress and development, at least to the level achieved by the Peninsula states. Have these promises to Sabah and Sarawak been fulfilled in the past five decades? The answer must be a loud no. Where has all the wealth of Sabah and Sarawak gone to in the past five decades?

Public Assembly Act 2012

Yes, we will investigate because they have committed an offence. Firstly, they did not inform the police that they would organise the rally. Secondly, they have done a street protest by marching in an open space.

‘Spun’

They spin that I said I cannot guarantee the safety of the opposition. As I have always stressed, the safety of the rakyat will continue to be prioritised without ‘favouritism’! Without fear or favour.

Selangor state election

The state government will only announce its final decision whether or not it would hold its election simultaneously with the 13th general election depending on the EC taking immediate action. That is the state government’s prerogative.

Turbulence in Sabah

That’s common in politics … Sabah is a unique state. Anyhow we will continue fighting, even if we hear of turbulence here and there, but it does not threaten BN’s position in Sabah.
