The Borneo Post - - HOME -

LUNDU: Barisan Na­sional ( BN) sup­port­ers in Tan­jong Datu have been re­minded to cast their votes to­mor­row.

Deputy Home Min­is­ter Masir Ku­jat said they should not stay at home pre­sum­ing that the BN would win.

“If two or three per­sons don’t come to vote it may not make any dif­fer­ence, but if 1,000 BN sup­port­ers don’t cast their votes be­cause they think BN will win then BN is go­ing to lose 1,000 votes,” he said dur­ing an event at the Lundu Town Square yes­ter­day.

“So I urge all vot­ers in Tan­jong Datu, do not think that way, but to turn out in full force and make your votes count in the bal­lot box.”

He also called on all mem­bers of non­govern­men­tal or­gan­i­sa­tions, es­pe­cially from the Chi­nese as­so­ci­a­tions in Lundu and Se­matan, to vote for BN to en­sure con­tin­ued de­vel­op­ment in the area.

BN is field­ing Datin Pat­inggi Datuk Amar Jami­lah Anu, the widow of for­mer Chief Min­is­ter Datuk Pat­inggi Tan Sri Ade­nan Satem for the by­elec­tion.

She is fac­ing Parti Bansa Dayak Sarawak Baru’s Rapel­son Richard Hamit and Johnny Bob Aput from the State Re­form Party Sarawak in a three-cornered fight.
