BN will not cease wooing Chinese community, says Nazri

KUCHING, April 29 — BN would not cease wooing Chinese voters in constituencies considered impenetrable, said Tourism and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz.

He said Chinese support was important for the community to be represented in the government and have their voices heard.

“A strong government is a government that represents all the communities in it. Therefore, we hope that the Chinese community would join us in forming the government,” he told a press conference here, today.

He was asked to comment on the support of the Chinese community for BN particularly in the urban areas in the 11th state election on May 7.

Meanwhile, Nazri said the next weekly Cabinet meeting would be held here as eight of the federal cabinet ministers who are from Sarawak are involved in the state election.

“The meeting should be next Wednesday but most of the ministers from Sarawak would be very busy with the state election so we made the decision to hold it here.

“The last cabinet meeting held outside Kuala Lumpur was in 1999, in Langkawi during Tun Dr Mahathir’s time,” he said. — Bernama
