BN's victory in Semenyih proves that Pakatan Harapan is focusing on the wrong thing, said former prime minister Najib Abdul Razak.
"They have made this huge mistake. They should focus on the people instead of attacking me.
"The people don't want them to attack me, they want to know how the government will fulfill their promises," Najib told reporters in Semenyih tonight.
He said this when asked if he felt that BN's victory was a vindication of the attacks against him from Harapan.
BN's recaptured the Semenyih state-seat tonight after Zakaria Hanafi bagged 19,780 votes, a 1,914-majority win over Harapan's Muhammad Aiman Zainali's (17,866 votes).
BN had lost the seat for the first time in the 2018 general election.
Meanwhile, acting BN chairperson Mohamad Hasan had credited Najib's presence on the campaign trail as one of the contributing factors for the coalition's victory.
This is BN's second victory since Najib debuted his "bossku" persona.
Najib told reporters tonight that the popularity of the gimmick was "organic" and in no way "orchestrated".
"This is a symbol that youths want us to fight for what's close to their hearts," he added.
