Don't Be Duped By Last-Minute Lies, Says Rosmah | 24/04/2010
Untitled document HULU SELANGOR, April 24 2010 (Bernama) -- Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor has advised voters in Hulu Selangor to be open-minded and not to be deceived by lies spread against the Barisan Nasional (BN) when they cast their ballot papers in the by-election for the parliamentary constituency tomorrow.

The wife of the Prime Minister, who attended two functions with the people here, was clarifying a last-minute lie about a purported debate between Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim tonight.

"Datuk Najib has told me himself that there is no programme at all for a debate. Look at how they create a lie, claiming something that is not correct just to confuse the electorate here. Later, when we don't come (for the debate), they say it's because Datuk Najib is a coward.

"My husband is not going to waste his time, he has other work to do, and he has no time for a debate with the opposition leader. We are thinking how to develop the country, how to raise the standard of living of the people, that is what Datuk Najib is thinking of," she said.

Rosmah also took the opportunity to express her appreciation to all members of the BN machinery who had worked hard to ensure victory for the BN candidate.

"I speak on behalf of the leader, in case you cannot see Datuk Najib and Datuk Najib has no time to say thank you. I wish to say thank you very much (on his behalf)," she said.

"So, I hope the voters will not listen to the slanders hurled by them and I hope everyone have decided to vote for 'abang' Kamal (P.Kamalanathan), our candidate from the BN," she said as the campaigning became more intense on the eve of polling day tomorrow.

P.Kamalanathan is facing stiff competition from Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) candidate Datuk Zaid Ibrahim after two Independent candidates had withdrawn from the contest. The seat fell vacant following the death of incumbent Datuk Dr Zainal Abidin Ahmad from the PKR on March 25.

The Prime Minister's wife said the BN machinery should go all out because they had less than 24 hours before polling day.

"According to our calculation, insya-Allah we can win, but I must remind everyone that it's like playing badminton. Until we have secured the 21st point, we have not won yet...although we feel we can win, we must work until midnight tonight," said Rosmah, who is also patron of the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM).

She said this when addressing the audience at a gathering organised by the Ministry of Women, Family and Community Development at the BN Operations Centre at Bukit Sentosa, here.

In the afternoon, Rosmah launched the 'Nasi Lemak-Teh Tarik and 1Malaysia Food Fair' organised by the National Heritage Department in Kuala Kubu Baharu.
