BN supporters in Tanjong Datu reminded to vote
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.
