Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
He said this was evident by the number of first time voters in the Pekan constituency alone.
"Of some 80,000 voters in Pekan, about 24,000 are first time voters," said Najib at a gathering with young voters here Saturday.
Najib said he was confident the majority of youths would side with and support a Barisan Nasional government.
other countries, youths are restless, angry, full of hatred and always
demanding for the government to be changed. They behave that way because
their leaders do not care about them.
"In Malaysia, we have
governed the country well. We have provided hundreds of thousands of
jobs and I have promised 3.3 million jobs by 2020," he said.
added that training schemes and an education system that provides
opportunities as well as various attractive youth programmes had been
prepared by the government.
"This is why in Malaysia, our youths
are not angry at the government. Youths will prove in this elections
that they know only Barisan can guarantee their future," he said.
Earlier at the launch of a new building at SJK(C) Pekan, Najib called on the constituents to give him the biggest support.
incumbent Pekan MP said it was his first time contesting the seat as
the Prime Minister and he needed the Pekan voters' support so that his
leadership would be better accepted and respected nationwide.
"Anything we want to do on the national level starts from the Pekan grassroots because I am contesting here," he said.
Najib also announced a RM300,000 allocation for the construction of a pre-school block for the school.
