SIBU, May 13 2010 (Bernama) -- The prime minister's wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor called on Barisan Nasional's (BN) women campaigners in the Sibu by-election to understand the problems faced by fence sitters in wooing them.

She said they were normally more concerned about the minor problems they were facing and gave little thought to long term matters.

"I hope BN's women campaigners will go the extra mile to convince fence sitters to vote for the BN candidate to enable the coalition's work of bringing progress for the people to proceed smoothly," she said at a gathering of Malay and Melanau women in Kampung Bandung here Thursday.

Also present was Minister in the Sarawak Prime Minister's Office Datin Fatimah Abdullah and Sarawak United People's Party (SUPP) women's wing chief Suzanne Lee.

Rosmah also reminded Malaysian women, especially in Sibu not to be taken in by the propaganda, lies and empty promises made by the Opposition.

"The BN has a proven track record. The BN is sincere in administering the country towards ensuring our children have a brigther future," she said, adding that voters in Hulu Selangor had rejected the opposition in the recent by-election there.

Women voters make up 53 per cent of the electorate in Sibu.

Meanwhile, Fatimah, who is also Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu's (PBB) women's wing deputy head said the BN's women's election machinery had stepped up its activities to woo fence sitters.

"Our canvassers are going door-to-door to listen to the people and help solve their problems," she said.

She called on women voters in Sibu to translate their support by ensuring a resounding victory for the BN on Sunday (polling day).
