JOHOR BARU: Perikatan Nasional is capable of planning and driving development in Johor so that the people will be able to enjoy its prosperity, says Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

The Perikatan chairman, who is also Bersatu president, called on all Johorians to support and vote for Perikatan candidates.

“This is the golden opportunity for Johorians to establish a clean, responsible state government that has integrity and is people-centric,” he said in a Facebook post Saturday night (Feb 26).

Muhyiddin also said that the 56 Perikatan candidates were qualified, experienced individuals of good moral character who fulfilled the criteria needed to be an elected representative.

“Every selected candidate has undergone and passed a strict vetting process to ensure they are free from any wrongdoing, free from court cases such as corruption, embezzlement and misuse of power.

“All candidates will sign a declaration and take an oath rejecting all forms of corruption, power abuse and swear to undertake the responsibility and duty of forming a clean state government,” he added.

Today is nomination day for the Johor state election and voters will go to the polls on March 12, with early voting on March 8. – Bernama
