  President's policy peech on 20 November 2000
Dalam meneruskan perjuangan, kita tidak patut terpengaruh dengan propaganda pemimpin-pemimpin Barisan Nasional bahawa kononnya menuntut hak kita seperti yang termaktub dalam Perlembgaan Persekutuan adalah tindakan berkonfrantasi dengan Kuala Lumpur.
Semasa pilihanraya 1999, Barisan Nasional juga telah menabur berbagai janji pembangunan.
Kes ini hanyalah sebahagian kecil daripada kecurangan pentadbiran Barisan Nasional yand tidak diketahui oleh rakyat.

The vast majority of Barisan Nasional's seats are held by its three largest race-based parties — the United Malays National Organization (UMNO), the Malaysian Chinese Association (MCA), and the Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC) — each of which is sectarian in nature, though officially supporting racial harmony.

The landslide victory of the Barisan Nasional, causing the main opposition party -- Parti Islam se-Malaysia (PAS) -- to suffer, is attributed particularly to the marvelous job of Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.
The Barisan's near win in Kelantan, with 24-21 for PAS, was also due to Badawi's consistency in his vision of a progressive Islamic state.
On a national level, Barisan Nasional has secured 198 out of the 219 seats in parliament, meaning that it not only commands two-thirds of the seats, but also enjoys a strong rule over the country.

 BN Manifesto - Cemerlang, Gemilang, Terbilang and "Temberang"
The Barisan Nasional 2004 General Election Manifesto of “Cemerlang, Gemilang, Terbilang” (Excellence, Glory and Distinction) has omitted a fourth term “Temberang”, which is defined by Kamus Dewan as “percakapan dll yg sedap didengar (umumnya tidak benar)”.
The Senate, for instance, should stop being a dumping ground for political has-beens and rejects and those in Barisan Nasional who fail in their bid to become candidates in the general election.
The other claims in the Barisan Nasional Manifesto of “Cemerlang, Gemilang, Terbilang” are also all “temberang”, which I will comment in the next three days.

 Media Statement by Parliamentary Opposition Leader, DAP
Barisan Nasional leaders should give a commitment not to use politics of intimidation and flmail, like threat of May 13, in next general election if they really respect the right of people to elect candidates and parties of their choice ====================================================================================
The "fundamental liberties" of Malaysians as enshrined in Part II of the Malaysian Constitution, whether liberty of the person, freedom of speech, assembly, association have been systematically emasculated and eroded over the decades, and Malaysia in 1999 is clearly more undemocratic than Malaysia on achieving independence 42 years ago in 1957.
If Barisan Nasional leaders really respect the fundamental right of Malaysians to vote as they choose, and even to "boot out" the Barisan Nasional government, Barisan leaders should give a commitment not to use politics of intimidation and flmail, like the spectre of May 13 violence, for the coming general election.

 Wahid on Islamic state
A Barisan Nasional win in Sanggang will mean "more of the same" Barisan Nasional development as in the past four decades, while a Barisan Alternative victory in Sanggang will mean unprecedented development in Sanggang in the next four years which had never been seen in the past four decades.
This is because a Barisan Nasional defeat in Sanggang will be the final warning to the Barisan Nasional that it must undertake comprehensive political and economic reforms in the Pahang state if it is not to lose Pahang state power in the next general election whether in 2003 or 2004.
A Barisan Nasional defeat in Sanggang in the by-election will tantamount to a vote of no confidence in the Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob as Pahang Mentri Besar, particularly for his lewd gesture on Sanggang nomination day - and a demand that Adnan should publicly apologise for his crude, vulgar and indecent conduct.

 [No title]
If general elections are held now, the Barisan Alternative would have ended the political hegemony of the Barisan Nasional and removed its uninterrupted traditional two-thirds parliamentary majority, ushering in a new politics in Malaysia and unleashing democratic forces for justice, freedom, democracy and good governance.
The past nine months since the last general elections have shown Malaysians of all races that the Barisan Nasional government is not a government to be fully trusted without an effective check-and-balance mechanism firmly in place in Parliament.
Instead of focussing on these reforms for the good of all Malaysians, the Barisan Nasional and in particular UMNO leaders are only interested in the political game of how to consolidate their power positions and in particular win back lost Malay electoral support.

The desire by PBS to come into the Barisan Nasional's fold to contribute towards national development, unity and the country's vision for 2020 should be welcome by all components parties in the government.
Perhaps,it is time that our beloved PM and Barisan Nasional Chairman, Datuk Seri Dr. Mahathir Mohamad be given "special powers" to make decisions on such applications to join the BN rather than allow the present "consensus" which has been a hurdle preventing some parties from working earnestly for the BN at grassroots.
This is why the acceptance of PBS into the Barisan Nasional after a lapse of over 11 years is pertinent to clearly illustrate that the Barisan Nasional government still subscribe to fulfilling its election promises, contributing to the agenda of national unity and development where in the interests of the rakyat reign supreme.

The Barisan Nasional also exploited fully its standard election weapons such as promises of development projects, threats of suffering and underdevelopment if Sabahans did not reject the opposition, media monopoly, unfair tactics, money politics, and phantom voters in order to deprive PBS of a victory in the election.
Eighth, the Barisan Nasional continues to thrive on its established political strategy of "divide and rule" especially in dealing with political problems and developments in Malaysian Borneo, particularly Sabah.
Eleventh, the undemocratic use of phantom voters and other forms of cheating by the Barisan Nasional to turn election results in its favour is becoming institutionalised despite the Election Commission repeatedly denying such acts in the face of increasing proof of occurrences reported by the public.

Let me also reiterate here that Parti Keadilan Nasional is firmly committed to the principle of multi-ethnic politics and the defense of the legitimate rights of the minority communities in Malaysia.
Even on the question of Indian representation in elections, it should be observed that the Barisan Alternatif fielded 9 candidates for Parliament as against the Barisan Nasional's 7 in the last general election.
Instead of concocting and distorting statements which have a negative impact upon ethnic relations and minority rights, the NST and the media as a whole should be far more responsible and desist from playing communal politics on behalf of the Barisan Nasional.

 Barisan Alternatif - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Barisan Alternatif (BA, Alternative Front in Malay) is a coalition of Malaysian opposition parties, formed as a counterweight to the ruling Barisan Nasional.
The impetus for the BA's formation was the September 20, 1999 arrest and subsequent conviction of former UMNO deputy prime minister Anwar Ibrahim, who had been fired from his government posts and subsequently became the leader of the Reformasi movement against UMNO.
From the very beginning, the alliance had been strained by PAS's unwillingness to publicly renounce its aim of making Malaysia an Islamic state, a position that was anathema to Malaysia's 45% non-Muslim minority, although a temporary compromise was achieved when PAS did not include the issue in the joint manifesto.

 Most Chinese still back Barisan Nasional, says Najib
KUALA LUMPUR: There is no need for Barisan Nasional to be too alarmed by some Chinese votes going to the opposition during the recent Ijok by-election.
Barisan won the Chinese-majority Machap seat by a majority of 4,081 votes.
Najib however pointed out that Barisan had won the general election in 2004 with an “all- time high” and hence it was only to be expected for the numbers to slip a little bit for the Ijok by-election.

 Historical Background
In February 1994 PBS faced the general election with unprecedented pressure from the Barisan Nasional, largely because of the party's sudden exit from the national coalition four years earlier.
The resignation was caused by defections of a majority of PBS Assemblymen to Barisan Nasional parties.
Two seats were lost narrowly to Barisan Nasional candidates by just about 200 votes.

KUALA LUMPUR: Barisan Nasional will find out why there was a swing against the coalition in Chinese-majority areas in the Ijok by-election.
Barisan chairman Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said maybe there were reasons for it and possibly “things” that the Chinese voters were not happy about.
On a different matter, the Prime Minister said that on Aug 30, there would be a symbolic re-enactment of the lowering of Britain's Union Jack which would be replaced by the Jalur Jemilang at the stroke of midnight ushering in the 50th year of Malaysia's independence.

 10th General Election in Malaysia
The ruling coalition (Barisan Nasional) consisting of 14 parties, won 148 seats as compared to162 in the last election.
Despite these allegations, it could be said that by voting the ruling coalition to power, the people of Malaysia have, by and large endorsed the policies of the Barisan Nasional (BN) and the leadership of Dr. Mahathir Mohamad.
In all previous elections, UMNO the leading component of Barisan Nasional was seen as a true representative of Malays and have been overwhelmingly voted to power in the Malay heartland (Kelantan, Terengganu, Kedah and Perlis).
