Muhyiddin Yassin said: "Umno will fight to the last drop of blood to protect Malay rights, the status of the Malay Rulers, Bahasa Melayu and Islam as these matters are enshrined in the Constitution."
He said they would also fight to defend the rights of other races to ensure no one community would be oppressed.
He said the election also showed that the Malays had stopped supporting Umno, the Chinese were not supporting the MCA and Gerakan and the Indians were not supporting MIC and PPP.
He said the old unity and power-sharing concept that had brought development, growth, peace and stability in the country was now taken for granted.
Amazing, if only Muhyiddin study his own statement he should be able to find out why voters deserted the BN coalition.
First, his party and himself still cannot get over with race based politics. No one is threatening the Malays in the country. Globalisation is the main threat.
Second, the party continues to put other races at the bottom. The promise not to oppress the non-Malays is the biggest joke from a joker like our deputy prime minister. We are Malaysians and we are your bosses. As a Malaysian, I will vote against any UMNO candidate.
Finally, it is precisely the old political model that we have rejected. With leaders like Muhyiddin, no wonder this country at where it is now. No wonder BN and other non-UMNO parties will continue to face defeats in the elections.
