Tok Mat says he will quit as No. 2 if BN loses GE15


KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan says that he is prepared to give up his position as Barisan Nasional deputy chairman if the coalition fails to form the next government.

He pointed out that the 15th General Election is a "do-or-die battle" for Barisan.

"Our priority is the next election. We must win. If we lose, if you want the deputy chairman position, take it.

“Barisan must win. If not, it will be hard for us to come back. This is the last chance to prove we can retake Putrajaya,” he said in his speech at the Wanita Barisan Convention 2022 on Sunday (Aug 14).

The Barisan election director also reminded coalition members and supporters that the upcoming general election will be like no other as it will go up against several coalitions, including Pakatan Harapan and Perikatan Nasional.

However, Mohamad, who is fondly known as Tok Mat, said that momentum from the recent by-elections and state polls have given Barisan hope of winning.

“If this was a 100m dash, then there’s only 15m left. We have to sprint to the finish line,” he said.
