KUALA LUMPUR (Jan 9): The Cameron Highlands by-election on Jan 26 will be seen as a benchmark of the people’s acceptance of Barisan Nasional and its leadership, says acting UMNO president Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan.

As such, he said, it was imperative for BN to defend the Parliamentary seat by fielding a credible candidate.

“Victory in the by-election is crucial in gauging how far BN is from the people’s heart, especially in Cameron Highlands,” he told a press conference after chairing an UMNO Supreme Council meeting here today.

Mohamad is expected to announce the Opposition alliance’s candidate for the by-election tomorrow.
