Kuala Lumpur
– The message by UMNO President Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at Dewan Merdeka of the Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) today is crystal clear, that the upcoming 14th general election (GE14) is a huge battle, and with a huge mission.

He likened the coming general election to going to war.

As such, the prime minister diligently imparted upon the delegates that this general assembly and the coming general election is not only for the sake of UMNO or Barisan Nasional (BN) alone, but one that will determine the survival and destination of Malaysians and the country.

“This (coming) general election is not just another general election,” he said, adding that It also determined “the fate of the nation”.

The mission is so massive. Various transformation programmes and 1Malaysia products have been introduced. Infrastructure projects are not implemented only in the federal capital, but also in the rural and interior areas, including in Sabah and Sarawak.

All these need the necessary support and a huge mandate, not only from UMNO or BN members, but from all the people to together uphold the aspiration to empower the race and transform the country.

Throughout the policy speech, the words “general election” were mentioned not less than 20 times by the president and he also repeatedly reminded the delegates of the possible disaster if the mission failed.

“In this war, which is the mother of all general elections, we will fight all out,” said Najib to the cheering sea of party delegates, including Wanita, Youth and Puteri members, who were dressed in red.

UMNO realises the huge challenges facing this coming general election. Firstly, the cyber war, with the dissemination of inaccurate information and lies.

According to Najib, UMNO and BN had become victims of the opposition’s politics of deception. – Bernama
