Johor polls not the time to experiment, people need experienced leaders - Nur JazlanSITI NURFATIHAH PIRDAUS
SHAH ALAM - Johor Umno deputy chief Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed said the Johor state election is not the time to do experiments.
Instead, he said people need experienced leaders to represent the state on the road to recovery from the economic downturn caused by the pandemic.
He said at these times, people need leaders who can focus their attention and effort for the country’s economic recovery.
“This is not the time to experiment, you need experienced leaders. In Barisan Nasional (BN), we will give way to the younger people so that they can contest and we will guide them from behind,”
“There were spectrum from the old generation, middle generation (in BN) and now we are cultivating the young ones,” he said during the Wacana English Edition titled "Johor Polls: Emergence of a new power?", last night.
Nur Jazlan was responding to a comment by Malaysian United Democratic Alliance (Muda) vice president Dr Thanussha Francis Xavier who was of the view that having experience does not matter as can be seen through the situation during the recent flood incident in Johor.
He also said Johor was the second biggest economic region in the country which needed to recover from the economic decline, hence experimenting on the state election will be an inconsiderate move for the people.
“Now we need to make sure that attention and effort is being put towards recovering the economy,” he said.
