KOTA BARU: Kelantan Umno is geared up for the coming general election and has intensified its ceramah, said state Umno liaison chief Datuk Mustapa Mohamed.
He said the party's election machinery was all ready to go and all its area polling centres had been opened.
"I am satisfied (with the preparations) and the high fervour shown by members and supporters at all divisions. We are just waiting for the final whistle.
"The only thing we have not finalised yet is the candidates list. We want the best candidates, so more time is needed," he said after a dinner and dialogue with the Kelantan batik industry players here on Wednesday.
On the Kelantan batik industry, Mustapa, who is the International Trade and Industry Minister, said there was a need for a strong long-term strategic plan for it to remain viable in the coming years.
