BN to use own logo in GE16, says Zahid

DESPITE cooperating with Pakatan Harapan in the next general election, Barisan Nasional (BN) will use its own logo, said its chairman Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

“We will continue working with PH in the 16th general election.

“However, we will use the Barisan Nasional logo. This does not mean we are moving away from the unity government alliance.

“It means that Pakatan can contest using its logo and we will contest with our own, but in terms of cooperation, we will maintain it.

“As long as the constituencies we contest in are not contested by them and we do not contest in the areas they are contesting in,” he told a press conference after officiating at the Maran Umno division delegates meeting in Pekan Tajau here Sunday (June 30).

In his speech, Ahmad Zahid said that since the party has been in the unity government with Pakatan Harapan, no Islamic agenda has been sidelined.

“I am responsible for steering UMNO (and) I will ensure that the component parties in this Unity Government adhere to all matters enshrined in the Constitution, protecting issues related to Islam and Malay rights, neither more nor less, period. That is our confidence,” he said.
