Johor polls: The more the merrier, says BN over parties fielding candidates

JOHOR BARU: Barisan Nasional welcomes the participation of many political parties taking part in the coming Johor state election.

Barisan deputy chairman Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan said the more political parties joining the fray, the merrier the Johor state election would be.

“The more the merrier,” he said when asked if having a high number of political parties taking part in the snap polls would be an advantage or disadvantage to Barisan.

Mohamad, who is also Umno deputy president, said this after attending the soft launch of the Barisan machinery as part of the coalition's preparation for the state election.

Barisan chairman Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi officiated at the soft launch, which was held behind closed doors at the Johor Umno headquarters here on Wednesday (Jan 26).

Also present at the event were caretaker Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Hasni Mohammad, MCA secretary-general Datuk Chong Sin Woon and other state Barisan leaders.
