BANDAR MUADZAM SHAH, April 24, 2015:PAS will leverage on social media to campaign for its candidate, Nazri Ahmad, rather than engage in poster wars with Barisan Nasional (BN). In revealing this, its vice-president, Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man, explained that there was now more focus on the new media as he felt that the party could better connect with the younger voters with the new media. “There is an estimate of 33,383 voters, aged between 21-49 in the constituency.” Tuan Ibrahim also said it had become a trend in developed countries not to utilise posters in campaigns. “There are no posters in elections in the United Kingdom,” he claimed at a press conference earlier today. He also revealed that the Islamist party would adopt a more personal approach in canvassing for votes, which included meeting the voters personally. “It is easier this way. We will meet them, one constituent at a time.” Meanwhile, Nazri said he received “encouraging response” from the youth when he visited the Tioman island constituency. He also said among the problems faced by Felda settlers were obtaining a second home and not receiving any grants for land although three generations had resided there. “There is also the matter of uneven or ill-planned development.” Nazri will go against BN’s Datuk Hasan Arifin in a straight fight for the Rompin parliamentary seat, which fell vacant following the death of its incumbent, Tan Sri Jamaluddin Jarjis. The people of Rompin will head to the polls on May 5.
