NGO: Undi18 led to younger candidates, more fresh faces in Johor polls

THERE is no clear picture yet of where the youth vote for the Johor state elections went, as this will only be known once Election Commission (EC) data is released. However, from anecdotal evidence and from information gathered from election observers, the youth votes appeared to be split between Pakatan Harapan, PKR, Perikatan Nasional and also Barisan Nasional, says Undi18 NGO co-founder Tharma Pillai.

Tharma observed that during the Johor polls, many parties shifted their strategy in response to Undi18. A clear impact of Undi18 is that across the board for all parties, there was a significant shift to nominate younger candidates and fresh faces for candidacy.
