GEORGE TOWN: Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin instructed members of Barisan Nasional component parties to focus on ensuring the coalition's victory in the next general election instead of being preoccupied with their party elections.

Saying that the next general election, the country's 13th, was most crucial for the Barisan, he advised the members to forget about their party elections for the time being.

"Focus on the (next) general election and streamline party machineries.

“Do not be preoccupied with lobbying for party posts as the 13th general election is most crucial for the Barisan," he said when opening the Bayan Baru Umno divisional delegates meeting, here on Sunday.

Muhyiddin, who is Barisan deputy chairman and Umno deputy president, said it was necessary for the BN to use an extraordinary approach to go down to the ground and resolve the people's problems.

Referring to Penang Barisan, he said it must work as a team to regain the people's support so as to recapture the state in the next general election, instead of merely finding fault with the state government.
