GEORGE TOWN: Bersatu president Muhyiddin Yassin has dismissed claims that Johor was an Umno stronghold, claiming that Perikatan Nasional would win in the coming polls.

He said in the last general election, Umno fared poorly by only winning 15 state seats and only managed to form a state government with the help of Bersatu.

“The reality is, even at the federal level, Umno lost in the last general election. If it were not because of our help, they would have lost.

“If someone were to tell me that Johor is an Umno stronghold, I say ‘podah’ (get lost in Tamil),” Muhyiddin, who is also the Perikatan Nasional chairman, said at a ceramah tonight.

He said the coalition must ensure that Umno registers a bigger loss in the March 12 polls.

Muhyiddin also expressed regret that an election had been triggered when the state assembly was “stable” and was able to garner bipartisan support for constitutional amendments.

“Why do we need the Johor polls now when the opposition can support and give two-thirds support for any constitutional amendments?”
