KUCHING: The Barisan Nasional never abandoned those who voted for the Opposition in the previous state election, Nazri Aziz claimed.
“We are not a vengeful government,” the tourism and culture minister told reporters during a walkabout at China Town here.
Nazri later explained that Sarawakians may have voted for the Opposition in the last state election due to certain issues, although he did not get into specifics.
The Umno Supreme Council member, however, said that five years had passed and he was sure that “things have changed”.
“So I appeal to them. Give us your support (in the coming election).”
Nazri also said that all voters, regardless of race, were important to the ruling coalition and stressed that BN wanted all communities to be represented in the government.
He went on to claim that he was unhappy when a government was made up mainly of Bumiputera members.
“We want a multiracial government. No race should be excluded.”
