KUALA LUMPUR: Barisan Nasional chairman Najib Razak has assured his constituents in Pekan that he would remain loyal to them and not take them for granted.
He said he would continue to work hard with various initiatives and voters could see what he had done and achieved, and cast their votes based on those achievements.
“As MP for Pekan, I had this dream to be able to constantly ensure the wellbeing of my constituents and for the constituency to progress further and succeed.
“Today, the dream has been achieved. Pekan is rapidly growing in various fields, from education to employment,” he said in the latest blog entry at his personal web site, .
“Who would have thought that a small constituency like Pekan would have educational institutions such as Universiti Malaysia Pahang and DRB-Hicom University of Automotive Malaysia, as well as being the preferred location for manufacturing plants of international automotive brands like Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, Isuzu and Suzuki.
“In fact, I’m very proud to know that the Mercedes-Benz plant in Pekan is the first plant outside Germany to assemble the most luxurious Mercedes-Benz S-Class!,” he said.
Najib seeks re-election as Pekan MP in the general election on May 9.
He said the development in Pekan was an example of the importance of political stability and continuity which ensured that plans drawn up would be properly implemented.
Development was made possible in Pekan and other BN-led constituencies because the elected representatives worked with the people’s best interests at heart, he said.
“The election records prove that Pekan constituents are comfortable with me and Barisan Nasional, as we managed to retain the seat with a huge majority of 35,163 votes (in 2013),” he said.
Najib said he believed that Malaysian voters would cast their votes on May 9 based on the facts and not based on sentiment and fake news bandied about by the opposition.
In Pekan, Najib is being challenged by Mohamad Zahid Mat Arip of PKR, Captain (Rtd) Ahiatudin Daud (PAS) and Datuk Kadir Sainuddin (Independent).
