KEMAMAN: Chinese youths support for Barisan Nasional has now surpassed 50% as compared to the last general election, said Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek.
He said the improving support could be seen through group response to major youth programmes, such as the 'One Million Youth Gathering' in Putrajaya last month.
"In 2008, there was a slight decline in support over several sentiments not favouring us.
"Nonetheless, we are confident the changes taking place now, have led Chinese youths to understand the real issues in the national political landscape," he told a press conference after presenting contributions to 200 Chinese recipients here.
Ahmad Shabery said the Chinese community should also appreciate the concerns of the government on their welfare, irrespective of their cultural and religious differences.
For example, he said, the construction of the Kemaman Chinese Community Hall in Kampung Bukit Mak Dayang, costing RM3.8mil, was proof that the government provided facilities for them. - Bernama
