Sheridan Mahavera Noel Achariam Christopher Rabin

Half of the more than 53,000 voters in Semenyih are under 40, and they helped Pakatan Harapan capture Semenyih on May 9, last year. – The Malaysian Insight file pic, February 28, 2019.

FOOTBALL matches, direct phone calls and going house to house are among the ways the Semenyih by-election candidates are reaching out to the under-40 group of voters – the bloc whose votes decided the outcome of the state seat on May 9.

The under-40 makes up half of the 53,257 voters in Semenyih and it was this group which allowed Pakatan Harapan to capture Semenyih for the first time in the last general election.

  • To those young people out there. If You borrowed PTPTN loan then it's your duty to repay. You were laughing and smiling when your account was credited with the money. You used part of the money to lepak at mamak stalls too.Don't expect free handouts. There is no free lunch in this world.

    • The law of life. U borrowed u must pay. Ask what u can do for our country and not what country can do for u. Repayment is v important. It will benefit other students.

  • Remember: 14 main promises for the first 5 years . Our manifesto.
    10 promises in 100 days. 5 to 6 already delivered. PH only 9 months old child or government. Dont expect it to crawl or walk that fast. Be patient. Real personality or potential emerges within 2 to 3 years.
