Ghani Advises Young Voters Not To Succumb To Emotions

Young voters have been advised not to succumb to their emotions when provoked by opposition supporters whose actions have created hatred between supporters from both sides of the political divide.

Outgoing Johor Menteri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman said they should instead think carefully and clearly before casting their votes as the next five years would be crucial for the state.

"Young voters will be able to make better judgement if they are calm and have a clear mind and not influenced by emotions," he said at a gathering with voters from the Taman Impian Emas Flats, in Johor Baharu.

Asked on the status of 'grey' areas in Johor, Abdul Ghani said it had become better during the election campaign period.

He said tomorrow, the voters would decide on who they could trust in taking care of their future.

On the opposition predicting that they would win 10 to 12 paliamentary seats, Abdul Ghani said the high number was to impress and influence voters.

He was confident that Barisan Nasional would perform better this time.

On his health, Abdul Ghani said it was good and he was eating as usual and had sufficient sleep during the campaign period.

"It's that sometimes when I stayed out very late to attend ceramah, I would stop somewhere to enjoy a burger which is not good for my health," he said.

Asked what he would be doing on Monday, Abdul Ghani said he would spend time with his grandchildren.
