By-Election Wins Show Support For Najib, Says Taib

MIRI, Nov 5 (Bernama) -- The Barisan Nasional victories in the Batu Sapi Parliamentary and Galas state by-elections show that more people are endorsing the leadership of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud said here Friday.

He said the results of Thursday's polling also indicated that the opposition were fast losing their credibility.

"(More) people have begun to realise that there is a great change after the new Prime Minister (took over)," he told reporters here before holding a closed door meeting with members of the Tiang Chuan Clan Association.

Taib said the new man at the helm had demonstrated his ability to improve the government's delivery system, and this has helped him to gain the confidence of the people.

He said Najib's imaginative ways of solving problems could also lead to greater support for Barisan.
