General Election 2008: Horse's mouth

I saw this report in Bernama, arising from an interview that the Prime Minister gave on Bernama TV. Can't say it didn't come straight from the horse's mouth when it's so clear....

Umno veep supports halt to Penang mega projects

Supporting the call by Umno Penang for all BN mega projects in Penang be stopped, Umno vice-president Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam put the blame on voters who decided that they did not want the major projects by voting in for the opposition.
"We have to stop all major projects to Penang as this is what the people wanted. If we continue with the project it would be almost impossible for us to regain control of the State in the next General Elections,” the Malacca Chief Minister said.

"If we stop all major projects, the people would realise what they had lost and would then come back to the BN. This is the only way we could recapture the State in the future from the opposition," he told reporters after visiting the Menara Taming Sari project near Dataran Pahlawan along Jalan Merdeka, here, today.

The proposed Penang mega projects include those planned under the Northern Corridor Economic Region (NCER), the second Penang Bridge, the light monorail transit system, the Penang Outer Ring Road, the Penang Sentral and the RapidPenang bus service.

"The people in Penang have clearly rejected development and they want a change," he said.
In the March 8 polls, Umno only won two parliamentary seats and 12 state seats in Penang.
