Ahmad Zahid said Chinese voters in Sarawak too supported the various initiatives introduced by Sarawak Chief Minister Adenan Satem, more fondly known as Tok Nan.
The victory, he said, showed the Chinese community wanted their aspirations voiced in the state legislative assembly by BN Chinese candidates and not the opposition alone.
“Thank you for giving another five years to Tok Nan. I am sure he will continue his struggle for the people of Sarawak, including the Chinese community," he said.
Ahmad Zahid said Sarawak BN's victory under ‘Team Adenan’ was also a measurement of the BN's capability in implementing various development programmes based on the success record before this.
“I wish to thank all the machinery and BN staffers at the state and national level for the dedication in campaigning for our beloved coalition," he said.
Ahmad Zahid added that DAP, PKR, and Parti Amanah Negara which were still "thick" with their racial and religious sentiments and with different political ideologies and positions were rejected by the voters.
“The opposition is the source of this extreme politics. They are the one destroying political development," he said, adding that they were supposed to be partners but could not work together.
