Youth wing to ensure Barisan sweeps Perlis seats
KANGAR: Perlis Umno Youth has vowed to help Barisan Nasional win all the three parliamentary and 15 state seats in the general election now that Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim is defending his Tambun Tulang state seat.
When it was speculated earlier that Shahidan might be dropped as a candidate, there was talk of mass resignation in the Perlis Umno Youth. The depressed mood among the members switched to a cheerful disposition following Shahidan’s announcement.
“He is our idol and we will work hard to ensure that he continues to helm the state,” declared Kangar Umno Youth head Hamuner Hamzah at the Mentri Besar’s official residence.
“We are thankful to Datuk Seri Pak Lah (Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi) who accepted our views and proposed Datuk Seri Shahidan for the Tambun Tulang state seat,” he told Bernama.
The Perlis Wanita Umno and Puteri Umno also echoed the pledge of the youth wing to help the Barisan win all seats.
Except for the Sanglang state seat won by PAS, Barisan won all the seats in Perlis in the 2004 general election.
