I was invited by the Public Relations Consultants Association to speak on the influence of new media in Malaysia. The other guest speaker was Nurul Izzah.
Both of us spoke on the role of new media in the last General Elections 2008 ("GE"). The emergence of blogs, online news providers, online forum and even SMS brought about significant change to the political atmosphere during the last GE.
Urban constituencies like Subang Jaya and Lembah Pantai have definitely received much from the new media. I hope Malaysians will continue to be politically aware and diligent in seeking truth from the media.
I am glad that young politicians like us are given a chance to present our views and expectations.
