Najib to SUPP: Pick candidates who can win
By RINTOS MAIL
KUCHING: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has asked the Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) to only select candidates who can win in the coming state elections.
He said there was no point keeping the old candidates or introducing new faces if they could not win the seats for Barisan Nasional.
“Give me winnable candidates, who can assure the seats for Barisan.
“You must win all your seats in order to be a strong partner in Barisan,” he said at the opening of the SUPP Convention here on Sunday.
Najib, who is Barisan chairman, said SUPP must not pick someone to be its candidates simply because they were important in the party, but those who stands a good chance of securing seats.
“It is important that you select a candidate, who is acceptable to the community or the constituents.
“That’s the only way to create a new SUPP,” he noted.
He said to ensure all Barisan candidates stand a good chance of winning, he might change the convention, where in the past he only endorsed the choice of component parties.
“If necessary, I may exercise my power as Barisan chairman to veto some candidates if they have no chance of winning,” he said.
Later, when asked at a press conference if he would exercise his veto power in the coming state election, the Prime Minister said:
“I will discuss with the leaders of all the component parties first.
“We will do it in a true Barisan spirit in reaching a consensus of selecting our winnable candidates.”
