JOHOR BARU: Rumours of an impending general election has not affected the stability of Johor, says Mentri Besar Datuk Onn Hafiz Ghazi.
Onn Hafiz said that the state government is more focused on attracting investors and achieving its vision for the state.
"Even though there are rumours going around that the Parliament will be dissolved, in Johor, we can guarantee you stability in the next five years,” he said.
Onn Hafiz added that this is because Johor had its state election in March
“We are pleased to inform you that we have a stable government. We (Barisan Nasional) won 40 out of the 56 seats that were contested.
"I don't share this out of arrogance or to brag, I am sharing this to all of you to give assurance that we can guarantee you consistency in policies and stability in the next five years," he said.
Onn Hafiz said this in his speech during the launching of the Sankyu Technical Academy at Persiaran Medini Sentral 2 here on Thursday (Oct 6).
He said that the stability in Johor has allowed the state to attract more investors.
"Based on reports that I have received, because of the stability and vision we have for Johor, in June, we recorded the highest investments in the country at RM60.9bil," he said.
Also present at the event were state investment, trade and consumer affairs committee chairman Lee Ting Han, state youth, sports, entrepreneur development, cooperatives, and human resources committee chairman Mohd Hairi Mad Shah and Japanese Ambassador to Malaysia Katsuhiko Takahashi.
