MALAYSIAN GENERAL ELECTION: GOVERNMENT MANIFESTO TO INCLUDE SPECIFIC AGENDA FOR YOUNG PEOPLE

MUAR, Johor State, Malaysia, Barisan Nasional’s (government’s) manifesto for the 14th general election (GE14), will include a specific agenda for young people and the future generation.

Prime Minister and BN chairman, Najib Tun Razak, said, this was because BN was not just paying attention to the development of the current generation, but also to the efforts to ensure the survival and better future for the next generation.

“We are not just a party fighting for today, we are not just fighting for our generation, we are also fighting for our future generation.

“In this regard, I agree with (BN Youth chairman) Khairy Jamaluddin’s proposal that, we should have a specific chapter on the young people,” Najib said, when opening the BN Youth and Puteri machinery gathering, at the National Youth Skills Institute in Pagoh, near here, today.

In front of over 10,000 BN Youth and Puteri members, Najib also made a pledge to think about other agendas deemed important for the young generation, such as knowledge and skills, income and job opportunity, as well as, housing and lifestyle, to be included in the manifesto.

He said, high-impact projects, such as the High Speed Rail (HSR), Light Rail Transit (LRT), Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) and the Pan Borneo Highway, were not just being implemented for the benefit of the current generation, but also for the future generation, as the projects also involved young workforce at the implementation and management levels, such as engineers and surveyors.

Najib, who is also UMNO president, also called on the Youth and Puteri machineries to be more aggressive and bold to go all out to ensure victory for BN in the GE14
