KUCHING: All component parties of the Barisan Nasional (BN) must remain united to maintain stability, which is the cornerstone of the ruling coalition’s success.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, who is also national BN chairman, said if the interest of the party was put above all other issues, BN would maintain its stability and success.

“There is no substitute for stability. All political parties certainly have their own challenges but there are ways to overcome these issues.

“All BN component parties be it Umno or PBB must manage their internal affairs properly. A strong party is the one that is united,” Najib said when officiating at the 13th Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) Convention held at the Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK) here yesterday.

Najib was confident Sarawak would continue to deliver the seats for BN in the next general election.

Stressing the need for the state and Federal Government to continue its strong cooperation, he said that the state could rest assured that it could count on the Federal Government for support.

Also present were his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, PBB president and Chief Minister Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud, the party top leadership and state dignitaries among some 5,000 delegates and independent observers. - theborneopost
