WASTING no time, Barisan Nasional’s Bukit Bintang candidate Frankie Gan unveiled his manifesto for GE13 right after nominations closed on Saturday.
He spoke about his manifesto at the Hang Tuah flats playground, where he had organised a gotong-royong recently.
Bukit Bintang Umno division chairman Datuk Seri Abdul Azim Mohd Zabidi, PPP and Gerakan counterparts S. Sathiah and Siow Chee Meng as well as several local MCA leaders were present.
Gan’s manifesto includes implementing tourism-related initiatives in parts of Bukit Bintang as well as focusing on the needs of the public, especially the elderly.
The highlight was the launch of “Frankie Gan MTV album for GE”, where Gan sang a few songs in Chineseand Malay to the multi-racial crowd gathered at the playground.
Gan, who had worked in the entertainment industry in his youth, sang as he danced along with his back-up dancers.
The album contains 11 tracks on CD, comprising songs in Malay, Tamil and Chinese dialects.
“The songs are multiracial because I want to tell people that I am here to serve them. No discrimination,” said Gan.
In addition, the album also contains a VCD with not only accompanying videos for the CD’s track but also an introductory video on the Barisan candidate.
The album was given out for free to the Hang Tuah residents at the launch.
