KOTA KINABALU: Sabah Gerakan chief Datuk Gordon Leong is confident that Sabah’s Chinese community would make a wise decision when casting votes in the coming general election.
He said the community would vote with wisdom, and not with emotion or be easily swayed by the opposition’s empty promises.
He said this when asked to comment on a call by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak on Sunday that those in the Chinese community who liked his leadership should give solid support to Umno and BN, if they wanted him to bring more successes to the nation, via the national transformation programme.
The prime minister said this in a special interview, prior to the 66th Umno General Assembly next week, when asked to comment on remarks by political observers that some quarters in the Chinese community liked Najib’s leadership, but not his party and BN, and were divided over giving support. — Bernama
