BARISAN candidate for the Damansara parliamentary seat Ryan Ho is urging voters to be united at the polls regardless of race or party affiliation.
“Our nation seems divided and I really hope that we will unite and move away from the politics of hate and vote for a candidate who will serve the people well,” said the 30-year-old lawyer from MCA.
He added that voters should choose wisely and cast their vote for a candidate who can provide solutions to their problems and one who will represent their voice.
If elected, Ho pledged to stand against corruption and promote transparency with the help of technology.
“With the use of digital programmes and technology like blockchain where figures are updated and streamed live, this leaves no room for corruption to happen,” he said.
He said the people needed to know how taxpayers’ money was used and this was one way of informing people and ensuring transparency at the same time.
One other promise he made in his manifesto was to work towards improving the current education system, to make it one which would help better prepare the younger generation for the future.
“Education is something close to my heart and I believe that everyone deserves a chance for quality education regardless of whether you are rich or poor.
“We need an education system where the younger generation can secure better jobs in future as knowledge is the key to becoming a developed country,” he said.
Ho is standing against Pakatan Harapan incumbent Tony Pua from DAP and newcomer Datuk Wong Mun Kheong from Parti Rakyat Malaysia (PRM).
