KUALA LUMPUR, June 13 2012 (Bernama) -- The young generation remain confident and believe Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak will provide a better future if Barisan Nasional (BN) is given the mandate in the 13th General Election.
However, the belief should be translated through the new intellectual approaches, besides being concerned about problems faced by the group.
The National Union of Malaysian Muslim Students (PKPIM) president Ahmad Fahmi Samsudin said the approach, especially for students, should be continuous.
"Indeed, more than the majority of voters are youths, but it is the government's responsibility to provide fundamental things or people's concern such as education, infrastructure and job opportunities," he told Bernama in response to Najib's statement during a live chat session through the New Straits Times (NST) website,, NSTLive, yesterday.
The Prime Minister stated that BN would fulfill the young generation's aspirations for development chances and better quality of life, if they voted for BN in the coming general election.
Ahmad Fahmi said the approaches needed to be changed in tandem with time because the young generation today are not easily influenced by the media reports and not easily sweetened by the materialistic elements.
Malaysia Tamil Youth Bell Club Council president K. Murali said the youths wanted the government to look at issues that are important to them such as welfare, social, human capital and entrepreneurship.
Murali who was also confident in Najib's leadership, said that the projects and policies under the Government Transformation Programme (GTP) and Economic Transformation Programme (ETP), had given priority to the development of the young generation.
Malaysian Association of Youth Clubs (MAYC) Global Relief president, Akhramsyah Muammar Ubaidah Sanusi said the Prime Minister's assurance had showed that he was looking forward to ensure the young generation had hopes for a better quality of life in the future.
