New voters have no loyalty to any political party. As such, Barisan Nasional (BN) component parties should approach first-time voters among the youth to win in the 14th general election (GE14), said BN Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin.
“We as BN Youth need to play our role to approach these voters face-to-face and understand their aspirations and concerns on the rising cost of living, inflation and so on.
“In my view, they have not decided yet on who to support; they have no loyalty to any party,” he said after opening the myPPP Youth general assembly at Wisma Felcra today.
Present were myPPP Youth chief Sathiah Sudakaran, myPPP senior vice-president Maglin Dennis D’Cruz and other myPPP Youth leaders.
Earlier, in his opening speech, Khairy, who is also youth and sports minister, said all BN Youth wings should work together to ensure the people did not have a perception that BN was not concerned about them.
He also urged the BN Youth to work hard to ensure the people were not deceived by the populist promises made by the opposition.
“This GE, this time around is very critical and challenging for BN. I am confident the people can give us the mandate, considering BN’s track record so far,” he said.
Meanwhile, Sathiah hoped BN chairman Najib Razak would consider MyPPP president M Kayveas as the BN candidate for Cameron Highlands in GE14.
He expressed confidence that Kayveas would help move the country forward.-BERNAMA
