SHAH ALAM, April 10 (Bernama) — The Selangor Barisan Nasional (BN) special manifesto for the 13th general election is expected to be launched by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak next week.
Najib is also Selangor BN chairman and election director.
Selangor BN election deputy director Datuk Seri Mohd Zin Mohamed said they were in the midst of finding the suitable date for the launch.
Generally, the Selangor BN manifesto was aimed at making Selangor a premier state, in line with the federal government’s development, through the Economic Transformation Programme to add value to the knowledge-based economy and human resources,” he told reporters after meeting with Federal Village Security and Development Committee representatives here Wednesday.
Mohd Zin said the manifesto also emphasised on people’s welfare and wellbeing, as well as on efforts to turn Selangor as Malaysia’s new economic growth booster.
He said through the manifesto, Selangor BN also promised to provide affordable homes, incentives and various aids to the people, development along the road linking Klang and Port Klang, as well as an economic growth area covering Port Klang, KL International Airport and Kuala Lumpur.
Selangor BN also promised to solve the issues of water supply, flash floods and waste disposal in the state, he said.
Mohd Zin said Selangor BN was also prepared to face the general election and the members were in high spirit to ensure victory for the coalition.
“I can see that their spirit, level of preparedness and mood, have increased since the dissolution of Parliament on April 3,” he added. – BERNAMA
