‘We only want Umno and BN to win big and be retained in power’
KUALA LUMPUR – Umno branches and divisions nationwide should fully utilise the experience and influence of veteran party members to ensure a big victory for Barisan Nasional in the coming general election.
Malaysian Umno Veterans’ Club secretary Datuk Mustapha Yaakub said their wide experience and wide influence could provide the much needed ammunition to deny the dream of the opposition to conquer Putrajaya.
“What we want is to help strengthen the party in line with our motto ‘Veterans are catalysts to the Leadership of Umno’. “We don’t have any ambition to return actively at any levels or compete for any posts. We only want Umno and BN to win big and be retained in power,” he told Bernama.
He said through the slogan ‘My family votes BN’, the club would ensure every Umno veteran family’s vote was counted.
“With more than 700,000 members nationwide, we will summon all our members to strengthen the party in facing the 13th general election,” he stressed. – Bernama
