JERANTUT: The 14th General Elections (GE14) will be a battle between Barisan Nasional-led Umno government and Pakatan Harapan-led DAP.
Umno Supreme Council member Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said voters only have two choices to determine who will lead the country and a mistake in making the right decision could spell trouble.
He said Malays and bumiputera have two choices on the table, which is to remain loyal with the ruling government BN or DAP, which is the more dominant party in the opposition pact.
"Umno has always upheld the institution of the Malay Rulers and protect the privileges of the Malays and bumiputras, but all that will disappear should the DAP-led government come into power as they will champion for "equality".
"If DAP rules, agencies like Mara (Majlis Amanah Rakyat) will be closed and other bumiputra institutions will suffer too.
"The next election will determine the survival of Umno and the Malays," he told reporters after opening Jerantut Umno division meeting here today.
Also present was Jerantut Umno division chief Datuk Ahmad Nazlan Idris.
Meanwhile, Ismail Sabri reminded Umno Youth and Puteri wings to utilise the social media to counter lies spread by the opposition and instead to continuously attack them (opposition) by exposing the problems (of the opposition).
"Enough of defending. Now it is time for Umno to launch their own attacks against the opposition. In fact, the opposition themselves have a lot of problems and issues among them.
"The opposition attacks us on issues that have been solved(past issues)by spreading lies on the social media.
"We should not give them space but switch into attacking mode based on the proof and information that we have in hand," he said.
