The Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia, Muhyiddin Yassin told reporters and supporters that Malaysian voters are once more warming up to the National Front Coalition, more popularly known as BN.
The BN clearly won one state seat and one parliamentary seat during the recently held by-election. This just concluded by-election was called as a result of the death of both incumbents.
The Parliamentary seat is in the eastern state of Sabah and the state seat is in the northern state of Kelantan. Kelantan is now ruled by a member of the Opposition pact, the Islamic party of Malaysia or usually known as PAS.
Leaders of the various component parties in BN are now pointing to the detailed results which showed a clear shift of both Chinese and Indian voters to the ruling coalition. During the last General Election in 2008, both groups abandoned the ruling BN which resulted in the loss of four states to the Opposition.
On the other hand, political analysts in the nation’s capital city of Kuala Lumpur attributed the victory to the positive vibes of Prime Minister Najib Razak’s conciliatory leadership style. The Prime Minister have focussed on the unity of the country since day one. His clarion call is 1Malaysia.
