Skuad Sayang to help in GE14 cam­paigns

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

KUALA LUMPUR: Skuad Sayang pa­tron Datin Seri Ros­mah Man­sor, who is the prime min­is­ter’s wife, has urged Wanita Umno mem­bers to dou­ble their ef­forts when cam­paign­ing for the up­com­ing 14th gen­eral elec­tion (GE14).

Skuad Sayang is a vol­un­tary so­cial or­gan­i­sa­tion with mem­bers com­pris­ing women from Umno and Barisan Na­sional.

She cited Skuad Sayang’s “per­sonal touch”, which can be used as a guide to gar­ner the rakyat’s sup­port for the party when gear­ing up for GE14.

“With more than three mil­lion Wanita mem­bers as part of the largest po­lit­i­cal party in Malaysia, it is a force to be reck­oned with due to their so­cial wel­fare ef­forts,” she said, adding that women have an ad­van­tage with their “gen­tle touch”.

She ad­vised them to utilise so­cial me­dia to en­hance com­mu­ni­ca­tions with the pub­lic as it is used as a pri­mary plat­form for news.

Ros­mah cited United States pres­i­dent-elect Don­ald Trump’s win in the coun­try’s elec­tion, and at­trib­uted it to his com­mu­ni­ca­tions skills.

She was speak­ing to some 190 Wanita wing divi­sion chiefs here yes­ter­day dur­ing a Skuad Sayang na­tional-level mem­bers’ ap­pre­ci­a­tion event.

Also present were the move­ment’s chief com­mis­sioner Tan Sri Shahrizat Ab­dul Jalil and SUPP Wanita chief Datin Jen­nifer Chee.
