BN candidates at ‘final vetting’ stage

April 3, 2013

Barisan Nasional will launch its manifesto at the 'IMalaysia People Frst Assembly' in Bukit Jalil stadium on Saturday.

PUTRAJAYA: Barisan Nasional candidates contesting the 13th general election will be announced seven to 10 days before nomination day.

Secretary-general Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said BN chairman Najib Tun Razak will hand over the list of candidates to the state liaison chairmen.

“The state liaison chairmen will then hand over the appointment letters to the candidates. We hope it can be done 7 to 10 days before nomination day,” he told reporters after “Kayuhan Patriotik 1Malaysia@ Putrajaya” event here today.

The BN candidates’ list is at the final vetting stage for health, financial institution, the police, Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and Insolvency Department.

“Those on the list can give us medical reports issued six months ago. If not, they will have to go for medical check-up,” he said.

Tengku Adnan said BN is ready to face the general election and is just waiting for the Election Commission (EC) to announce the dates for nomination and polling.

Najib will chair a special meeting of Umno supreme council tomorrow morning and then meet with the BN supreme council at 11am at Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC), Kuala Lumpur.

“We will be launching the BN manifesto on Saturday at the Indoor Stadium in Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur,” he added.

Meanwhile, a source said the manifesto will be launched by Najib, who is also BN chairman, at “1Malaysia People First Assembly” at the stadium.

He is scheduled to deliver a speech at the assembly expected to be attended by BN component party leaders and thousands of guests.

It is understood that the BN manifesto contains BN government’s achievements over the past five years and what it wants to do for the people and the country over the next five years with the new mandate.
