Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak believes that the Chinese community has broken through the “psychological barrier” and is now willing to support Barisan Nasional.
However, the Prime Minister said there are still many who do not belong to any political party and they are the ones who would contribute to the swing factor in the general election.
“The Chinese are good at making money but you need stability and you need social harmony.
“What you need to do is to realise who can provide that.
“I am gratified with the results of the Sarawak election and the two recent by-elections.
“One interpretation is that the Chinese community has broken the psychological barrier and you are willing to take a serious look at supporting Barisan.
“That is a good sign but there are also many who do not support either Barisan or the Opposition parties and they can be the swing factor,” Najib said when opening of the Associated Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry Malaysia’s (ACCCIM) 70th annual general meeting here Wednesday.
Najib also said that the people had to realise that a divided and fractured Opposition without a clear objective and led by individuals of dubious personalities do not lend confidence in the future.
“I think what you want is stability and a government that cares for you and listen to your needs. I will do my best to support all communities.
“If there is any inadequacy, please let me know. I don’t believe we can get everything right but tell us how we can do better.
“I will listen. I don’t talk too much like one of my predecessors but I do listen,” he said.
Present were Chinese Ambassador to Malaysia Dr Huang Huikang and Pahang Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob.
