MB: No defections in Negeri Sembilan - Malaysiakini

Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan has refuted claims that there will be defections involving Barisan Nasional (BN) assemblymen in Negeri Sembilan, according to Malaysiakini(B..Malaysia version) quoting Bernama.

"If it is true, give us the names... why should the Perak DAP be concerned about it? Why not just look after Perak?" he said, when met by reporters at his office today.

He was asked to comment on claims by the Perak DAP which was frontpaged in the China Press that three or four state assemblymen would be defecting to Pakatan Rakyat. Mohamad said BN assemblymen were loyal and committed to the party.

MB nafi wakil rakyat NS keluar BN

Menteri besar Negeri Sembilan menafikan desas-desus beberapa Anggota Dewan Undangan Negeri (Adun) Barisan Nasional akan menyertai pembangkang.

"Kalau ada dakwaan, suruh dia bagi nama. Yang DAP Perak risau sangat pasal apa, jagalah negeri Perak itu," Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan dipetik berkata

Beliau diminta mengenai dakwaan DAP Perak yang tersiar dalam laporan mukadepan akhbar China Press yang menyebut tiga atau empat wakil rakyat negeri akanmenyertai Pakatan Rakyat.

Menurut Bernama, Mohamad berkata wakil rakyat BN bawah pimpinannya mempunyai integriti dan jati diri yang kuat serta sayangkan parti.

"Saya tidak nampak mereka ini senang dipujuk dan mudah melompat keluar dari Umno walaupun ada antara mereka telah tewas dalam pemilihan peringkatbahagian masing-masing.

"Semangat mereka kepada parti masih kuat," katanya.

Meanwhile, Umno vice-president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has expressed support to the proposal to introduce the Anti-Hop Law to ensure political stability in the country.

"It's needs to be looked into again. It is not that we fear more will leave the Barisan Nasional (BN) but what is important is the question of principle," he said.

"Personally, I do agree to that a re-look be made at the earlier provisions of the Federal constitution.

"But, of course, it's entirely up to BN leaders to see the rationale in amending the constitution (to enable the enaction of the proposed Anti-Hop Law) and find out what the people think about it," he said.

Muhyiddin, who is International Trade and Industry Minister was speaking to reporters after attending a Chinese New Year open house at the residence of his deputy and Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) president Datuk VK Liew, in Kota Kinabalu. (Read the Bernama report

UMNO-BN MPs and assemblymen are only loyal when the cash are still flowing. If the top tier leaders take it all for themselves, the so called 'Loyalty' disintegrate into
Is money politics something new in UMNO?
"Dog eats Dog" UMNO culture is well ingrained in the minds of these unprincipled politicians.
As the financial difficulties reach its height in Bolehland, when dirty money is hard to come by, loyalty becomes self deceiving.
