GE14 | Umno vice-president Hishammuddin Hussein described Invoke Malaysia’s findings that several BN politicians would be defeated in the 14th General Election a political gimmick as the campaign period nears its end.
Hishammuddin, the incumbent for the Sembrong parliamentary seat, said the survey was merely to create a virtual perception or virtual reality on social media.
“This Rafizi (Ramli, founder of Invoke Malaysia), I see him willing to do and say anything for his own self-interest.
“Therefore, when we look at Invoke’s predictions, that we lose Sembrong, Pasir Gudang and Johor Bahru, I want to ask what is the rationale, what the facts are,” he told reporters after visiting the Felda Ulu Belitong district polling centre in Kluang yesterday.
Hishammuddin was commenting on Invoke Malaysia’s claims that several BN politicians, including him, would be defeated in GE14.
Invoke Malaysia also speculated that Mohamed Khaled Nordin, contesting for the Pasir Gudang parliamentary seat and Abdul Samad, incumbent for the Johor Bahru parliamentary seat, would be defeated.
Hishammuddin said he refused to entertain the survey and the BN would prove that it was a blatant lie concocted by Rafizi.
He said the voters, particularly in the Sembrong constituency, were the ones who would determine his political destiny and not the survey carried out by Invoke Malaysia as he had done his best for the good of the Sembrong constituents.
Meanwhile, he believed the settlers in six Felda settlements in Sembrong parliamentary constituency including Felda Ulu Belitong would continue supporting BN, to show their gratitude to the late Abdul Razak Hussein’s role in introducing and developing the Felda scheme.
Abdul Razak, incumbent prime minister Najib Abdul Razak’s father, was Malaysia’s second prime minister.
