Politically Frank: Voters want harmony, political stability, Malaysia to lead, says Ku nan
SHAH ALAM - The people will vote Barisan Nasional as the government to bring back political stability, says Umno treasurer-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor.
Commonly known as Ku Nan, he said the time has come for the people to choose in order to regain the harmony and peace Malaysia experienced before 2018 elections.
He said the country has gained a little bit of stability under Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob's administration.
“For me, the time has come for the people to choose the government.
"Politically we have not been stable since GE14. Luckily when Ismail Sabri took over, it became a bit stable but still some ministers in Cabinet did not want elections to be held.
“I believe Malaysians will vote us back in because they want prosperity and harmony,” he said during Sinar Daily’s Politically Frank.
He said this in response to rakyat's concerns after Umno top leadership insisted on elections despite fears of monsoon season.
The Putrajaya incumbent added Umno has an advantage despite deciding to go solo in the GE15 because it is a multiracial party.
Tengku Adnan further said they were formed with people from various races and welcomed anybody who wants to work with them for the development of the nation.
“But if they are only inclined to power, how can we accept them? So we decided to go solo,” he said.
When asked about the criterias of a good prime minister, he said they should be someone who is competent, who can bring Malaysia forward and sustain development and to be a leader within Asian countries.
He said integrity and honesty is a must, no matter the religion since all religions encourage their followers to do right.
“Of course integrity and honesty is a must for a leader.
“I am a Muslim and I know which is haram and halal, you think i stole money?
“I believe that everyone, whether they are an atheist, Muslim, or whatever religion, they know what is right and wrong,” he added.
