The Sabah UMNO machinery is ready to campaign to ensure victory in favour of the Barisan Nasional (BN) candidates and also the unity government, using the available strenght.
However, the number of leaders and machinery that will be deployed to support the State Election campaign in the six states remains to be determined, Bung said.
“The number of Sabah UMNO leaders and machinery will be decided after consultation with the state UMNO leadership,” he said.
Bung said this when met after conducting a survey in several voting districts within the Gombak Parliamentary constituency recently.
Joining him was Sabah UMNO Secretary Datuk Jafray Arifin and several UMNO divisional leaders.
“Despite the very large area of Selangor, we intend to carry out door-to-door campaigns and reduce campaigns at rallies because door-to-door campaigns are more effective and efficient.” said Bung.
