GE13: Ghani appeals to young voters not to be swayed by racial sentiments

State Barisan Nasional Chief Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman has appealed to young voters not to be emotional and vote based on racial sentiments which have been played up by the Opposition in the state.
He urged them to think carefully and not to place the future of the state and country in the hands of the Opposition.
Ghani, who is contesting in Gelang Patah parliamentary, hoped that the fence sitters would also choose Barisan on Sunday to continue their plans to develop the state.
"The Opposition is not united as they have different ideologies. "I hope young voters will not be carried away with all the tactics used by the opposition to fish for votes in GE13," he said after his walkabout and meeting with residents of Taman Impian Emas flats on Saturday.
He urged voters to "defend Johor" from the Opposition to ensure all its development projects would not be affected especially in Iskandar Malaysia.
He also brushed off claims that the Opposition would be able to win at least 12 parliament seats in Johor from the present one that they have.
The opposition won the Bakri parliamentary in 2008.
He added that even the "grey areas" in Johor have warmed up to Barisan and he was confident of a good victory for Barisan in Sunday's polls.
