KUALA LUMPUR: Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin wants Barisan Nasional elected representatives to be role models when they hold positions.
“In Umno, I have spoken to various leaders and told them they have a choice whether or not they want to hold any position in the Government.
“If they want to hold positions, they must be responsible and act as a role model for the society,” he said at the breaking of fast function organised by the 1Development Fund Bhd (1MDB) here.
Muhyiddin, who is Umno deputy-president, called on all Barisan leaders to strengthen the party election machinery to win big in the upcoming election.
“We must remain strong in order to win back the votes and face the challenges," he added.
He noted that it was important to preserve unity among the various races and religions.
“In our country, we celebrate and observe the fasting month harmoniously with all the races.
"In Syria, there is an ongoing crisis between those who support and those against the government.
