‘Vote BN out’ roadshows get moving – FMT
Solidariti Anak Muda Malaysia said that the general election would be a battle between Barisan Nasional and the people.
Speaking at a press conference today, SAMM national coordinator Badrul Hisham Shaharin said that the first roadshow was held on Feb 1 in Malacca.
“We will go all over the peninsula.The last event will be the People’s Demand Convention in Kuala Lumpur, scheduled for Feb 23,” he said.
The venue and the time for the convention are yet to be confirmed
The roadshows, Badrul said, would be supported by the Anything but Umno (ABU) movement and other NGOs that aspire to put Pakatan Rakyat in power.
On details of the roadshows, Badrul, who is also PKR Rembau division chief, said that SAMM would educate the masses on the importance of voting BN out from federal power.
“We want to educate them that a new beginning can only start with the fall of BN. For that, we must do all it takes to vote the ruling coalition out,” he said.
He added that they will also distribute about three million pamphlets to security personnel, housewives and others to keep them informed on the recent happenings in the country.
“We must educate the people that the fight is not between BN and Pakatan. It’s between BN and the people,” he said.
Badrul could not confirm whether Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim will be attending the convention.
“We have extended invitations to all political party leaders. So we will see who replies,” he said.
