It shows BN lost in kampung Ijok and Pekan Ijok, not like previously reported, Bukit Badong.

Congratulations YB Cikgu K. Parthiban, BN candidate for Ijok and YAB Dato’ Seri Dr. Mohd. Khir Toyo, BN Chairman for Selangor. This also proves that BN Deputy President YAB Dato’ Seri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak’s campaign strategy and tireless personal involvement for the last ten days was very successful despite Anwar Ibrahim’s and most of the PKR intense campaign is based on serious attempts in discrediting Najib with rumours and baseless allegations.

Tun Dr. Mahathir explains Malaysiakini story

Former UMNO President and Prime Minister YABhg Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad explained today on the report that Malaysiakini carried out stating that he had campaigned for the people of Ijok to vote the Oppositions. He said it important that the people should send signals to the leadership about certain issues without defying their support for Barisan Nasional (BN). Tun Dr. Mahathir said he would never turn his back against UMNO and BN.

He was speaking at an event in at a private orphanage function in Batu 6, Bukit Naga, Section 32, Shah Alam, Selangor this morning. The theme was “Majlis Jasamu DiKenang dan Terima Kasih Tun Dr. Mahathir”.

He also appreciated the people’s tribute for him, like the one in Bukit Naga this morning. He reminded further that is a very integral part of the Malay culture to acknowledge the elders’ contributions in society.

The former Prime Minister was his usual cheery and bubbly self in the suburbs of Shah Alam, this morning. As he said in private before, the opportunity for him to meet the rakyat gives him strength and rejuvenate his will to move forward. His usual warm smile illustrated it all.

So far, this year, Tun Dr. Mahathir has spoken at a few public events including the War Crimes forum at the PWTC in February and those organised by UMNO organisations. Due to his age and health condition, his physicians have asked him to reduce his engagements, especially trips overseas. It takes a lot of more rein this seasoned statesman 🙂
