Entertainment, PKLN ‘Brainwashing’ BN’s Tactic to Avoid Young Voters from Supporting Pakatan


SHAH ALAM, August 17: The outrageous entertainment factor and the ‘brainwashing’ tactic carried out through the role of the National Service Training Centre (PKLN) are among the reasons some young Malay voters are reluctant to support Pakatan Rakyat (PR).

The Chairman of Orange 13, Fariz Musa, said many young voters are among the product of PKLN used by Umno-BN to spread propaganda and slander against Pakatan.

Describing it as one of the causes of the increase in percentage of young voters supporting the ruling party, he said that the same propaganda is being disseminated through various government programmes.

“It is used as a tool to disseminate propaganda and negative perception towards Pakatan,” he told TVSelangor and did not rule out the possibility that giving out the 1Malaysia People’s Aid (BR1M) is another factor.

He said this when asked to comment on the results of a study conducted by Merdeka Center stating that first-time young Malay voters support Umno-BN.

According to the study, young people will become a larger group of voters in the next voting process compared to the two thirds, or 64.7 percent, of young voters registered this year.

PKR Srikandi Chief, Siti Aishah Shaik Ismail instead blames the local media for bribing the young people with extreme entertainment to avoid them from supporting Pakatan.

”However, she believed that the weakness in the GE-13, specifically related to the support from the young Malay people, will be overcome in the next election when certain mechanisms are carried out.

“We will give a new pattern to find a formula to captivate young voters,” she said when contacted by TVSelangor.
