PEKAN: Datuk Seri Najib Razak said Barisan Nasional will stay its course in the final lap to polling day despite provocation from the opposition.
The deputy prime minister, who is BN deputy chairman, called on party members to keep focused on securing victory for the coalition and not be distracted by the various last-minute tactics employed by their rivals.
"I am also hoping for voters not to be pressured by any attempt to intimidate or confuse them," he said after opening the new Mara business centre here yesterday.
Najib assured voters of ample security measures to ensure their safety on polling day.
He said the opposition was expected to resort to desperate tactics in the closing days of campaigning.
"They may even try to be aggressive in the hope of scaring our supporters from casting their votes," he said when commenting on an incident in Tumpat, Kelantan, where a BN shack was allegedly splashed with excrement on Wednesday.
He said the opposition had also predictably protested the cancellation of the use of indelible ink and would manipulate the issue into an excuse for their impending defeat.
"They will come up with all sorts of excuses if they lose but I don't think they will say anything if they win." MORE HERE
