Meanwhile, PKR has proposed a unique “democratic incentive” for first-time voters, aged between 18 and 21, to get out and cast their vote.
PKR communications director Lee Chean Chung said such an incentive would ensure higher voter turnout for these new voters as well as those studying in tertiary institutions, polytechnics, community colleges and industrial training institutes.
“This incentive will encourage them to return home to vote and reduce their transportation costs.
“I hope the current caretaker government can investigate this,” he told a press conference yesterday.
