BN to woo 967,000 new voters

(Bernama) – The Kedah Barisan Nasional (BN) will reach out to over 967,000 new voters in the state through the “1Million Voters” programme starting next month, its chairman Datuk Ahmad Bashah Md Hanipah said.

Through the programme, he said, the BN would mobilise its machinery, including the Youth, Wanita and Puteri wings in each constituency to gauge the support of new voters towards ruling coalition.

“This is a preparatory programme in an effort to wrest Kedah back from Pakatan in the coming general election.

“We have identified about 40 per cent of these new voters as the silent majority who we will focus on. At the same time we will move in to reach out to existing BN supporters,” he said at the Kedah Gerakan Chinese New Year open house here yesterday.

“These young voters are knowledgeable and will be able to make an informed decision whether to support the BN or not.”
