#GE13: Sabah BN makes its final campaign push. #Vote4BN #BetterNation #TolakPR #PRU13

In the last hours of the campaign period, Barisan Nasional campaign workers are giving it all they've got to woo voters.

In a final meeting at UMNO's main operations centre in Penampang, Barisan campaign managers from various kampungs report a strong support for Barisan with some asking for funds for coffee to keep campaign works going until the cut off point at midnight.

Penampang UMNO chief Datuk John Ambrose, who leads the Barisan election machinery here also reminded campaign workers to keep their tempers in check at the final hours of campaigning on Satrurday.

“I want you to return to your villages and work hard on the campaigns but please keep a cool head and don't get involved in any fights,” he cautioned about 21 campaign leaders from various villages.

Penampang incumbent member of parliament, Upko president Tan Sri Bernard Dompok is confident with his chances of retaining the seat and is looking forward to the results late Sunday night at his home in Inobong.

“The support has been very good and I'm confident Barisan will do well in all constituencies,” he said.

Dompok said his campaign is strong against that of the Opposition candidates who he believes have managed to sow hatred for Barisan among the people in the Kadazandusun heartland.

“This is very unproductive and I think the Penampang people are wise to know the difference between a responsible party and one that bases its campaign on hatred,” he said.

Dompok said he plans to rest well after campaigning tonight before preparing for the polls on Sunday.

Dompok is in a three-corner fight with PKR's Darell Leiking and STAR's Melanie Annol for the seat with 44,323 voters.
