Tun Mahathir convinced BN will wrest Hulu Selangor

HULU SELANGOR, April 24 (Bernama) -- Former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed said tonight he is confident the constituents in Hulu Selangor will hand over victory back to the Barisan Nasional (BN) in the Hulu Selangor parliamentary by-election tomorrow.

He said that the people were not foolish in evaluating which was the better political party in championing their cause.

He also believed that if the BN were to emerge victorious in Hulu Selangor, it would be a sign that the BN would achieve a bigger win in the next general election.

He said the people also knew how to evaluate who Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was.

"I'm convinced that the electorate in Hulu Selangor know Anwar's intention which will not bring any benefit to the people and country except to become the prime minister," he said when addressing thousands of BN supporters at a gathering in Taman Bunga Raya, Bukit Beruntung, here tonight.

Also present were Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and BN candidate P. Kamalanathan.

Dr Mahathir also wanted the people to reject the two-party system suggested by the opposition as this would not bring any develoepment to the country as they would be busy politicking.
