KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 1 – Umno Treasurer Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor called on Malaysians to continue supporting the new Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob and pray that whatever crisis plaguing the country will end soon.
He said there was a positive development in the Bursa Malaysia index as the upward trend continued after the change of government took place, and this means the country’s political development had given confidence to foreign investors.
This increasing ‘trend’ occurs when a new PM is appointed from among the leaders of Barisan Nasional (BN)/Umno compared with other parties.
“Another indicator of confidence is the value of our currency, the Ringgit, which has also strengthened against other major currencies. Alhamdulillah. This is one of the developments that gives hope that tomorrow will be a better day,” he said in a Facebook posting, today.
Ku Nan who is also the Member of Parliament for Putrajaya stressed that the BN/Umno leadership has great value and gives confidence to investors, including foreigners.
“After the appointment of the PM from BN/Umno, investors began to show confident in the country, and this reflects their trust in BN/Umno leadership.
“This is not just empty talk but based on real evidence. Just look at how the country’s economy is supposedly ‘good’ under the Pakatan Harapan (PH) government which only lasted 22 months and also under PM Mahiaddin Mohd Yassin for 17 months.
“It is clear that the propaganda/manipulation/perception spread on BN/Umno before the 14th General Election (GE-14) was mere slander because we always look after the political stability.”
Therefore, he said, the present government under Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob is the new hope for the people. The people believe in BN/Umno leadership.
“We have proven for more than 60 years, this is not a short period.
“Today, the people are confident that the government will be able to address health problems, especially the Covid-19 pandemic, economic, social and their well being,” he said.
