KUCHING: Santubong MP Datuk Dr Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar is confident that all state seats in his parliamentary constituency, especially Pantai Damai, will be won and won big by Barisan Nasional in the next state elections.
Referring to the 13th general election statistics, he said Barisan in Pantai Damai alone garnered 86.2% of the 12,322 voter turnout, thus making it a true Barisan stronghold.
According to him, this was due to the impressive leadership of its assemblyman Dr Abdul Rahmah Junaidi who was on the ground non-stop throughout the campaign period.
There are 17 voting districts in Pantai Damai alone which the doctor visited during the campaign period. Add in the PBB branches and his work rate was clearly impressive.
“He had shown great leadership and I am confident that if this leadership and the people’s undying support continues, we will win in Pantai Damai in the coming state election and other elections to come,” said Junaidi during a post-GE13 thanksgiving dinner hosted by PBB Pantai Damai at Hilton Hotel here yesterday.
The dinner was attended by hundreds of party workers and supporters.
On the Opposition, he said the leaders had shown double standards by insisting on doing street rallies alleging unfairness in the last general election.
Junaidi said they were against the very same democratic system that enabled them to rule Pulau Pinang and Selangor.
“In democracy we must accept the results. The winner must not
be boastful and the losers must not be sore losers.
“But they are blaming the very system through which they won Selangor and Pulau Pinang. So which is right?
“That is double standard. They are just looking for something to be blamed for their loss. And that is also what my current ministry has to deal with,” he said, referring his new post as Deputy Home Minister.
Earlier, Dr Abdul Rahman told the diners to maintain their support and unity until the next state election somewhere between 2015 and 2016.
“In the last general election BN won 86.2% of Pantai Damai voters. I challenge you to maintain that figure, or make it higher in the coming state election,” he said.
Dr Rahman advised the people to maintain the momentum and tempo of support, saying that the Malays in Santubong should support PBB and Barisan so that their dignity and honour would be defended.
