Umno still has mandate from Malay-Muslims, says Annuar Musa

Umno information chief Annuar Musa says the party still has the mandate from Malay-Muslims as it received 60% of their votes. He said Umno was only defeated by non-Malay votes and Malay votes that were split with PAS in GE14. – The Malaysian Insight file pic, June 1, 2018.

UMNO took 60% of the Malay-Muslim vote in GE14, claimed party information chief Annuar Musa as he sought to paint Pakatan Harapan (PH) as a “non-Malays only” coalition.

Citing “preliminary statistics” of the polls, Annuar said the results showed that Umno had the most support from Malay-Muslim voters and was the largest party in Parliament with 54 seats.

  • Once PH cuts off the cash - BN especially umno will definitely fall. GLC will be stopped to divert money to uno bank. Businessman will switch allegiance (Tan Sri Tony Fernandes). Once the money dries up - so-called umno members & supporters will desert umno (and some like jamal, musa has gone into hiding). Friends will dissapear into thin air (Jho Low) & Sirul). Without money - it is unlikely umno can rebuild.

  • RFLOL!! UMNO leaders better improve their mathematic and understand that poor Math was one of the basis of Najib's fall. If you do back of the envelop calculation, UMNO/BN have somewhere between 49%-55% of the Malay vote- assuming no voter fraud. So, yes they have the most Malay vote but they hardly have clear Malay mandate given they were incumbent

  • You know what is really scary, 27% of Malays-Muslim can completely ignore facts and truth of Hadi's PAS. Najib's biggest failure, his corruption of Hadi's PAS, successful had no impact n voters.
