KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 20 — Malaysians should trust the current Barisan Nasional (BN) leadership to bring the country to new heights of prosperity, Datuk Seri Najib Razak said today.

“Trust this leadership as it can bring the country into the future and prosper. Like how the aspirations of TN50 are, we look to make Malaysia a Top 20 nation,” the Prime Minister said today during the launch of the “Friends of Puteri Barisan Nasional”.

“This is our aspiration, do you think someone who is 93-years-old can bring us forward?” he asked in an indirect reference to Pakatan Harapan prime ministerial candidate Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

On the topic of the political campaigning, Najib stressed for party members to practice political consciousness during their struggle.

“I have to stress when in politics, we have to make sure we know what we are fighting for.

“We have to be conscious and aware the best party of choice for the present and the future is BN and no other,” he said.

Najib said the nation has been on course for a brighter future under the leadership of BN, where he highlighted the improved performance of the Ringgit over the last year, and the country’s economic growth.

He pointed out other upcoming development plans such as the high speed rail, Projek Tugu Nasional, and pointed out that 35 per cent of the civil service was currently occupied by women.

“We are also training the young to get themselves into the e-economy.

“All of these shows our agenda is not only for adults, but for the youths and millennials. BN is for the present and future,” he said.

He stressed that although BN are made up of members from various background and ethnicity, they are all united under the one party.

“Move in a united front for Barisan Nasional, as everyone one of us are friends. Through this hopefully you will never walk alone,” he said.

Najib said he hopes those representing BN would not consider working for the party as a burden, but rather to enjoy the experience.

“Do not take it as added stress, as once you have friends who assist with work, it would result in an enjoyable working situation,” he said.

“I want the spirit of ‘It’s fun to work in BN’ to exist in all,” he said.

Najib added the current coalition has an extensive and proven track record of development for the present and future, while taking a swipe at the opposition coalition.

“The opposition is an untested coalition, who are unhappy and do not trust each other within their party.

“This is why we cannot trust them and be hopeful, unlike how it is with Barisan Nasional,” he said.
