The massive Black 505 gatherings will not only record protest against Election Commission but will also win the sympathy vote of Malaysian youth – increasing the chances of opposition to win the next polls.
“We are talking about three more million new voters in the next five years. Once they manage to shape this opinion in the young people, they (the young people) would register as voters and support these parties in the next election,” said MCA central committee member Datuk Ti Lian Ker.
In the aftermath of May 5 polls, opposition has been organizing rallies to raise their voice against election irregularities. A similar rally has been called on June 15 in the city centre.
Ti also claimed that opposition parties are trying to manipulate Malaysians into altering the electoral system and are also exploiting the new social media instruments to gain unfair popularity.
“It was through their Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts that they spread this kind of message. Their aim now is the 14th general election,” he said.
