Sabah Barisan sounds election war drums with Blue Wave Tour

KOTA KINABALU: Barisan Nasional supporters in Sabah should continue to stand with the coalition all the way through the 15th General Elections (GE15), says Datuk Seri Bung Moktar Radin.

He said Barisan must prove that it is united and has efficient machinery at all levels including at the grassroots.

Bung added they must show the coalition's true strength especially to those who had once belittled Barisan and its leaders.

“The Gelombang Biru (Blue Wave) spirit that wants to see Umno and Barisan rise up and take over the government must be continued into GE15. This (spirit) must bring a big victory to Barisan,” said Bung Moktar.

He then called on all the members at district polling centres, branches and divisions to build on the strength they had now.

“Based on this principle, if Umno members were to be united and Barisan component parties were to be realistic which is to move based on facts and data, then Barisan will be able to restore its greatness,” said the Sabah Barisan Nasional chief

Bung Moktar then praised the large turnout by supporters in all its statewide Jelajah Gelombang Biru (Blue Wave Tour) programme so far.

He said the swarm of people coming to support the tour, which is also the launch of the Barisan election machinery, shows good momentum for the party as GE15 could be held at any time now.

“The Gelombang Biru gathering and launch of the Barisan election machinery signifies that the GE15 war drums have been sounded and all members must be prepared for this,” he said in a statement here on Sunday (Sept 25).

“The extraordinary reception by Barisan and Umno members clearly show the high level of solidarity of the Barisan coalition in the state to face the election,” he added.

So far, Bung and the Sabah Barisan leadership have visited three zones in the tour namely Zone 6 which consisted of Tawau, Semporna and Kalabakan, Zone 4 (Kota Kinabalu and Tuaran) and Zone 4 (interior areas in Pensiangan).

The next visit would be to Zone 5 (Kinabatangan, Beluran, Libaran and Sandakan) on Oct 1 and 2 before going to the other remaining zones.
