MELAKA – Barisan Nasional (BN) today launched its manifesto for the Melaka State Election themed, Stability for Prosperity, which outlines five thrust areas and 103 initiatives.

The hybrid launch of the manifesto held in compliance with the standard operating procedure (SOP) set by the National Security Council (MKN), was officiated by BN deputy chairman, Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan with Datuk Seri Sulaiman Md Ali, the BN candidate for the Lendu seat, also present.

Mohamad, who is also the UMNO deputy president, said the manifesto was a pledge to the people of Melaka that was guided by five main thrusts, namely, political stability; new economic leap; governance efficiency; a united society; and sustainable development and sharing of prosperity.

Under the first thrust, Mohamad said BN promised to provide an allocation to all the 28 Melaka state assemblymen including those not from the ruling government to ensure prosperity for all the people regardless of their political affiliation.

“This political maturity is also manifested through the proposed amending of the State Constitution for the purpose of appointing five additional assemblymen including from among the youth and NGOs (non-governmental organisations) so as to provide the space and state assembly sitting perspectives that are outside the political scope,” he said.
