GE14 | Caretaker prime minister Najib Abdul Razak today held a special meeting with the Barisan Nasional (BN) members of parliament in Seri Perdana in Putrajaya.
The meeting, which began at 9 am, lasted about half an hour.
Some MPs, who were met by reporters after the meeting said that Najib, who is also BN chairperson, wanted them to remain united.
Santubong parliamentary seat incumbent Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar said the prime minister also thanked all the people’s representatives for their services throughout the term.
"He thanked us for doing a great job.
"He also said that during the general election, there will be names that will be selected as candidates and some will be dropped, so he advised us to remain united with BN," Wan Junaidi said.
Perlis BN chairperson Shahidan Kassim, who is also incumbent of the Arau parliamentary seat said today's meeting was considered special because Najib touched on solidarity and loyalty towards leaders.
"At the meeting, the prime minister reminded us to stay together as a family," he said.
Meanwhile, Simpang Renggam parliamentary seat incumbent Liang Teck Meng, who is also Gerakan secretary-general, said Najib also asked them to get ready for the coming general election.
Tapah parliamentary seat incumbent M Saravanan said Najib advised the MPs to continue supporting the BN struggle regardless of whether or not they were being nominated in the general election.
"We are all happy with this meeting, which symbolises the unity of the BN,” he said.
Unrestrained power in your hands
For almost 20 years, Malaysiakini has stayed true to the cause of providing the Malaysian public with the truth. We believe that with unadulterated information, the people will obtain power to make informed decisions.
Decisions which lead to a healthy, robust nation - ours!
Keep the truth alive. Support your robust, independent media. You have the unrestrained power to do so.
Who says it's not our fault?
We aren’t trained to take responsibility.
Everytime we observe an injustice - and choose to keep mum - the prevalence of injustice becomes our fault.
Astute journalism paves the way for the public to be continuously furnished with the fastidious truth. You are continuously empowered to act and to uphold the integrity of the nation.
The Rakyat owns Malaysiakini
We choose to take a risk on independent media because we believe that only through independent reporting can one be NOT beholden to the interest of businesses or organisations. This allows us to really pursue the truth - aggressively.
Independent for 20 years.
The victorious people
In the light of holding the truth to power, Malaysiakini will continue to uphold its mission of providing credible news to its discerning public. Your support for Malaysiakini is always treasured as a testament of innate nationalism. Your victory is our history.
Quietly. Effectively. Says it all. Malaysiakini.
Speaking truth to power
When we embarked on this journey 20 years ago, we knew we would face intimidation, harassment, raids, arrests and perhaps even jail terms. We got into this venture with our eyes wide open.
The main reason we have survived this long - when many others have folded - is partly because we are prudent in our finances. But while we may be tightfisted in our budgeting, we do not hold back when it comes to speaking truth to power and holding power to account. And certainly, this new administration will not stop us from continuing to do so.
