It’s Barisan that offers stability, says Umno leader

KUALA LUMPUR: While the collaboration between Umno, Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia and PAS will be good for the unity of the ummah (community), it will not be good for political stability, says an Umno supreme council member.

Datuk Seri Abdul Rahman Dahlan said relations between the three parties would be a “problem” due to a clash of interests and lack of trust.

“They will be at each other’s backs for the next five years if they are to go to the polls together and win. There will be instability, and this will affect the economy.

“Therefore, by its collaboration in Barisan Nasional, Umno is giving the people a choice to elect a stable government that can fully focus on nation-building and growth.

“We don’t want to subject the people to five more years of instability.“It would be bad for the people and bad for the economy, ” he said.

The importance of political stability was also raised at the assembly.

Federal Territories Umno chief Datuk Seri Johari Abdul Ghani said Barisan managed to weather financial and economic crises in 1985 and 1997 because it led a strong and stable government.

“It boils down to stability. We had a coalition that represents (all) races in the country. Barisan’s track record cannot be denied, ” he added.

Perak Umno chief Datuk Saarani Mohamad said this was an opportunity for Umno to offer the people a government that was stable under Barisan.“We have the track record to prove our ability to lead and ensure that we have an administration that is strong and stable, ” he added.
