There will be no more Barisan Nasional (BN) representatives jumping ship after elections, the coalition’s deputy chairman Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan asserted today.

He said the four-party coalition has made all its Melaka election candidates sign “watertight” documents that purportedly prevent them from changing parties mid-stream if BN wins in the November 20 polls to form the state government.

“All of them have signed three sets of agreements. The agreements are watertight, and it will be very difficult for any of them to jump ship if they decide to do so,” he told reporters at the launching of BN’s manifesto for Melaka.

The Melaka election was triggered by four pro-government assemblymen who withdrew support for Umno’s Datuk Seri Sulaiman Md Ali as chief minister last month.

Two of them are now contesting the election on the Opposition Pakatan Harapan’s ticket. – MMO
