IPOH: Voters should not be fooled by the Opposition’s “games of perception”, says Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

Ahmad Zahid, who is defending his Bagan Datuk parliamentary seat in GE15, said Barisan Nasional was capable, had the vision as well as the experience to govern the country.

“Barisan has successfully returned the mandate to all of you, so please use it wisely and not make mistakes again,” he said in a Facebook post on Monday (Nov 14).

Dr Ahmad Zahid was addressing the over 260,000 Armed Forces and police personnel on the eve of the early voting.

“Voting for Barisan means you want stability for prosperity for the country. All of you can make this a reality.

“We had an excellent record in developing the country and brought prosperity for decades.

“Voting Pakatan Harapan, Perikatan Nasional or Gerakan Tanah Air (GTA) means you want instability to continue,” he added.

Early voting takes place on Monday (Nov 15).

Dr Ahmad Zahid, who is Barisan chairman, pointed out Pakatan had been given the opportunity for 22 months to lead the country but failed to deliver.

“Barisan may not seem perfect but at least we are an honest government,” he said.

“The Barisan government has proven that it can look after the people’s welfare.

“The people hoped for stability and prosperity, which can happen after Nov 19,” he added.
