Khairy Jamaluddin says BN is not fearful of state elections in Perak.
SEREMBAN: Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin yesterday hit out at opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim for daring Barisan Nasional chairman Datuk Seri Najib Razak to call for elections in Perak.
Khairy said Barisan Nasional was not afraid of state elections as alleged by Anwar. "We have nothing to be afraid of and are ready to face the people." He also called the Parti Keadilan Rakyat leader a hypocrite for courting defections last year but favouring elections when they occurred against the Pakatan Rakyat."When things work in their favour, they are quiet but when we managed to obtain a stay of execution, they claim there's a conspiracy.
"Ultimately, it is a question of principles, consistency and standards, which is something they (the opposition) don't stand for," he said after attending an Umno Youth meeting at the state Umno building near here yesterday.Khairy said the political situation in Perak could only be solved through two processes -- legal or legislative."Let the legal process be completed first before proceeding with the legislative process," he said, adding that Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir was the rightful Perak menteri besar as BN had the majority of state seats.
