PERAK Puteri Umno will reach out to the state’s 200,000 youths to regain their support for Barisan Nasional with the aim of wresting back Perak in the next general election.
Its chief Dr Wan Norashikin Wan Noordin said the wing would start with a “hearts and minds” programme to recapture the support of those aged below 35.
She said the wing would use IT and research to reach out to young voters including graduates and rural folk.
“We want to make sure that we will be able to win back the state in the 2013 general election,” the Kampong Gajah assemblyman said in Ipoh recently.
She said among the program-mes to be held was Puteri’s 2013 mission which would include a series of ceramah by Umno leaders on tactics of being in an opposition state.
Dr Wan Norashikin said among the speakers for the ceramah were Umno deputy president Datuk Seri Najib Razak and former Terengganu Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh.
