JOHOR BARU: Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin wants Gelang Patah Barisan Nasional to go all out to defend the Gelang Patah parliamentary seat in the general election.

Muhyiddin, also BN deputy chairman, said BN should retain Gelang Patah as the state administrative centre, Nusajaya, was located in the parliamentary constituency.

"I call on every member of Umno and BN component parties in Gelang Patah to go all out to defend the Gelang Patah parliamentary seat.

"There's no time to rest now. We must work hard 24 hours a day to ensure victory for BN," he said when opening Gelang Patah Umno delegation meeting.

The Gelang Patah parliamentary seat is currently held by MCA's Tan Ah Heng.

The two state seats under Gelang Patah are Nusajaya and Skudai. Nusajaya is currently held by Gelang Patah Umno chief Datuk Abdul Aziz Sapian while Skudai is held by Johor DAP chairman Dr Boo Cheng Hau.

Rumour has it that DAP will field Dr Boo as its candidate for the Gelang Patah parliament in the next general election. PKR wants its Johor chairman Datuk Seri Chua Jui Meng to also contest the parliamentary seat.

Muhyiddin said Nusajaya, as the state administrative centre and with its various infrastructures and educational facilities, was among the most developed areas in Malaysia.

Apart from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), Gelang Patah also housed several private world-class institutions of higher learning such as the Newcastle Medicine University Malaysia, Marlborough College and the first Legoland theme park in Asia.

Muhyiddin reminded Gelang Patah Umno members to set aside their personal differences and stay united to ensure victory for BN.
