He stated, “In any party election, there will always be a winner and a loser.” “The party election is over, and now let us move forward to strengthen the party… it’s time to deliver the goods.”

Bung is hopeful that the Beluran UMNO division will be able to work together to better serve grassroots voters and keep UMNO the popular choice in the upcoming state election.
