Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said Barisan Nasional will not easily collapse just because of the Chinese swing towards the Opposition.
He stressed the reality was that the Bumiputeras and Indians are still supporting BN and given their mandate to the coalition.
The BN chairman pointed out that the Opposition, especially DAP, has given the impression to the Chinese that they can change the government.
He described the deception as similar to the September 16 promise by Pakatan Rakyat, who claimed they would capture Putrajaya in 2008 through defection.
Datuk Seri Najib, who was sworn in as prime minister yesterday, also said he believed that if the Chinese supported the BN like in 2008, it was not possible for the coalition to garner a two-thirds majority in GE13.
Asserting that the Chinese has been taken for a ride by the opposition, he said immediate explanation should be given to make them aware of the reality.
He also dismissed the notion of a large shift in the urban Malay sentiment had contributed to the BN's declining support, stressing that Malay votes in urban areas had increased compared to that of 2008.
In 2008, Umno won 79 parliamentary seats.
This time it garnered 88 seats, which showed that their Malay support base had increased even in the urban areas.
The premier, who chaired a special closed-door meeting with BN newly-elected MPs at the PWTC, added that an in-depth study and discussions will also be carried out with BN component parties to review the outcome of the polls.
