KUALA LUMPUR: Chinese voters were taken for a ride by the DAP, leading to Barisan Nasional's reduced majority in the recent polls.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said today, the DAP deceived the Chinese community by spreading the belief that they could change the government by voting for the opposition.
"But they forgot that the Bumiputeras and the Indian community supported the BN.
"You cannot change the government without the support of the Bumiputeras," he said after meeting with the newly elected BN members of parliament today.
On opposition plans to protest the election results, Najib said the opposition should not be selective in questioning the electoral system.
"The system that led to their loss at the federal level was the same system that elected them to victory in certain states," he said.
