KUALA LUMPUR: Newly-appointed Sports and Youth Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said some unhappy urban voters who voted for the opposition could be wooed back to support Barisan Nasional.
The Umno Youth chief said this could be done by tackling issues close to their hearts.
"The election result is not a disaster for us (BN). We just need to address some issues like why some urban voters are not supporting us.
"I believe they merajuk (sulking), or jatuh cinta sekejap (puppy love) with the (opposition's) populist promises.
"We can pujuk (cajole) them since (tackling) some issues like transportation, corruption and crime is already work in progress," he told a forum entitled, "Leading The Nation Forward Post-GE13", here, Thursday night.
Khairy, who is also the Rembau MP, said the question of who had the most popular votes was not important as the people still had faith in the BN-led government and refused to fall for the opposition's populist promises. - Bernama
