KAJANG: PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail has tapped into the popular “selfie” craze to gain support from the younger voters here.
The PKR candidate for the Kajang by-election said she was not taking things lightly although she had been tipped to win the race against MCA vice-president Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun.
Dr Wan Azizah said she was making full use of the social media in her campaigns to woo younger voters.
“That is what the young people want. When I meet them, they will ask to take photograph’s and I will ask them to upload our selfie pictures online and tag me on my Twitter and Instagram account. All I have to do is smile,” she said during her walkabouts at the Pasar Tani Taman Saujana yesterday.
She also pointed that the party’s manifesto had outlined a specific agenda for the youth, including providing job opportunities as well as promising to bring a good football team to Kajang.
“We also plan to upgrade the Kajang stadium for football games and this is important as some of our national footballers are from Kajang,” she said.
She also took time to meet the youth while having breakfast at a few coffee shops along Taman Saujana Impian and Taman Cuepacs, Kajang.
In another development, DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang has welcomed MCA president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai’s call for all parties not to politicise the disappearance of MAS plane MH370.
He also urged the Government to set up a parliamentary committee to investigate the matter.
