KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 26 – Treasurer Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor has rejected negative allegations against Umno/Barisan Nasional regarding the dissolution of the Johor State Assembly (DUN) which paves the way for the state election (PRN).
He said that all allegations that the coalition is power crazy and greedy are baseless as the election is called according to the state’s Constitution.
“Efforts to tarnish Umno/BN are spreading fast. They say we are greedy for power and will bring hardship to the people. There also linked it with the ‘court cluster’. PRN is an opportunity for the people to determine the real leader based on the previous state government administration – between BN (before GE14), PH, PN and back to BN. See for yourself how many times the government had changed, from the greedy PH to the unperformed PN.
“BN is consistent in supporting the implementation of democracy and is confident that the people’s choice is the best. PRN is to get full mandate from the people.
“This is because the full mandate is very important to continue the administration and therefore, Umno/BN must return power through this PRN. Let the people choose fro any party contesting,” he said in a FB posting.
The Putrajaya MP added Umno/BN wants a stable government that has a full democratic mandate because it will be able to plan development and progress without much opposition.
“Look back at what happened before GE-14 and after that. Remember all PH promises during their campaign and the things contained in their manifesto. Then compare it with what happened after the people gave them the mandate.
“That is not to mention the various accusations leveled against us.”
He asked the people to justify the era after GE14 to the collapsing economy and many hardships they faced.
“The effect is not small and not even momentary because even now we still feel it. Choose the right leader and party,” he said.
Earlier, Sultan of Johor Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar has last Saturday agreed to sign the dissolution letter of the state’s assembly.
