Gerakan will be a formidable force in the 14th general election (GE14), said its president Mah Siew Keong.
He said the party had “licked its wounds” from GE13 and was now raring to face GE14.
“The leadership and grassroots (of Gerakan) are one solid team now and will do their part to ensure a big victory for BN in GE14,” he said when opening Sabah Gerakan’s Youth and Wanita annual delegates meeting in Sandakan today.
Gerakan was nearly wiped out in GE13. The party that once held power in Penang now has only two seats in Parliament.
It also has only three state seats, one in Johor and two in Sabah.
Meanwhile, Sabah Gerakan chairperson Gordon Leong Vui in his speech called for an end to politics of anger and hatred in the country saying it would be detrimental to the people and cited Sabah as an example where the people lived in harmony and solidarity.
