Barisan Nasional (BN) should not underestimate its Pakatan Harapan rivals, PKR deputy president Datuk Seri Azmin Ali said today.
Azmin reminded the ruling federal coalition that Pakatan Harapan parties have shown themselves capable of running Selangor and Penang, which he said would convince voters they could also run the country well.
“Yes, don’t underestimate the strength of the Opposition, including Pakatan Harapan, we have shown that we are able to lead and manage Selangor, Penang and before this Perak and Kelantan, and I think we manage to convince the rakyat that we are here to stay.
“So don’t underestimate us,” he told reporters after officiating an event at the Botanical Gardens here.
The Selangor mentri besar was responding to Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin who yesterday warned his wing members against taking their political challengers lightly, including the new party to be formed by former “bigwig” Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
