Selangor Barisan Nasional (BN) has urged voters in the state to choose wisely at the state election on Aug 12. 

Its chairman, Megat Zulkarnain Omardin, said BN, together with its partner Pakatan Harapan (PH), offered continued development and a better future to the people of Selangor in line with its position as the ruling coalition at both federal and state levels.

He added that Malaysians could not turn the state election into an experiment and think that the results would not impact the current federal government.

"Voters cannot allow the state government formed following the state election to be in opposition to the federal government as it would hinder important planned development for Selangor," he told reporters after officiating an event in Shah Alam yesterday.

Megat, the BN candidate for Gombak Setia, said he believed that Selangor voters were wise enough to assess the current political situation and realise that every vote would determine a brighter future for the state.

He said PH-BN's five-year manifesto for Selangor to be launched on July 31 would promise something that benefits the state and its people, adding that the current development and prosperity enjoyed today was due to Menteri Besar Amirudin Shari’s good administration, based on BN’s previous successes after PH took over the state government in 2008.

"With the combined depth of experience of BN and PH, I’m sure our offer will be better and of more use to the people," he said.
