‘MELAKA YOUTH STAND SOLIDLY BEHIND BN’
They are happy govt has taken their interests to heart, says NGO
MELAKA Barisan Nasional will face no problems getting votes from the young as they are happy with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s assurance of taking their interests to heart.
Najib, as BN chairman, said the BN manifesto for GE14 would be friendly to the younger generation as the party was serious in developing their needs.
Majlis Gabungan Belia Melaka president Mohd Ridhwan Mohd Ali said young Melaka voters were lucky to be among the groups often approached by state leaders via programmes and platforms.
He said this included the activities of youth associations, student associations, recreational sports meets and interactive activities, which led to discussions of the problems and needs of young people today.
“Of course, the youth in the state are comfortable with the state leadership, and I am sure they will continue to support Datuk Seri Najib and Chief Minister Datuk Seri Idris (Haron) on the basis that their youth focus is continuous, not seasonal.
“Better still, the voice of young Malaccans has been heard not just at forums, but also with the appointment of youth representatives in community structures.”
Ridhwan said the state government headed by Idris had provided jobs and facilities for youth.
He said it included opportunities to own affordable and comfortable homes, as well as opportunities to further one’s education and improve skills.
“InsyaAllah, I believe BN will again govern the state and country after GE14.”
