MUAR – Umno members have been reminded to work closely with Barisan Nasional component parties to ensure victory for the ruling coalition in the upcoming general election.
Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said that even though the party has its own target group, the Malays, Umno must never forget other component parties within Barisan.
“I am confident that our friends within the coalition will be with us during our activities, and Umno must help the parties’ machinery to ensure voters favour Barisan candidates in the next election,” he said after attending a closed-door meeting with several division leaders at the Muar Umno building here Thursday.
The meeting between Zahid and division leaders from Muar, Ledang and Pagoh lasted for more than an hour.
Zahid added that they should focus on voting districts where Barisan lost or held a slim majority.
