BUKIT KAYU HITAM, Jan 28 — There is no need for anyone to start an #UndiRosak campaign but instead beef up their respective party brands to win over voters, said Kedah Barisan Nasional chairman Datuk Seri Ahmad Bashah Md Hanipah.
The campaign is calling on youth voters to spoil their votes when casting ballots in the 14th General Election to voice their dissatisfaction with both the ruling Barisan Nasional coalition and opposition parties, claiming that both sides were out of tune on their aspirations.
Ahmad Bashah, who is also Kedah Mentri Besar and state Umno chief, said such a campaign was counterproductive.
“Who will lose if votes are spoilt? We (BN) want zero #UndiRosak (spoilt votes),” he told reporters here today.
He was commenting on the campaign which is currently trending on social media ahead of GE14, which must be called by August this year.
In Johor Baru, Deputy Home Minister Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohammad said the campaign was not initiated by the BN as claimed by some quarters.
“I think it is the work of activists who are fed up of the opposition and also still not satisfied with the government,” he told reporters.
In Kangar, PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang said the opposition party was strongly against the campaign because it did Islam and the country a disservice.
“Choosing leaders is a big responsibility and one that must be discharged by all Musims,” he told reporters at the Perlis PAS complex. — Bernama
