0 comments

PORT DICKSON: Umno Vice President candidate, Tan Sri Mohd Isa Abdul Samad has retained his Telok Kemang division chief post after beating contenders Mazman Mansor and Ramli Awang with a majority of 324 votes.

Isa Samad, who was joyful with the expected result, however expressed his disappointment when the Barisan Nasional coalition lost Teluk Kemang to Parti Keadilan Rakyat during the 13th General Elections. 
 
"We have to make more programmes and strengthen the party from within. Our friends from the other parties should also work hard to beef up their party,"
 
"If we can at least get 50 per cent of support from the Malay community, we can surely capture the Telok Kemang constituency,"
 
He noted that compared to GE12, in GE13 the majority gap was lesser, with many of the BN candidates losing with a majority in the region of 1,000, a stark contrast to the previous result. 
 
"We have to bridge that gap by working hard. The party should not only focus on the Malay community, but be friends with the others as well,"
 
"If we can do that, then I'm hopeful we can be triumphant in GE14."
 
Meanwhile, Negri Sembilan Tourism and Consumerism Committee chairman Tun Hairudin Abu Bakar was elected as the division's deputy chief post.
