Next GE will be all-out ‘cyber war’, Liow warns MCA Youth

(The Malaysian Insider) - The battlefront for the next general election will be an all-out war in cyber space, Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai warned MCA Youth leaders today.

The MCA deputy president reminded the party’s Youth wing that it needed to embark on a more aggressive online campaign, and that the party’s dismissal of the influence of blogs and the Internet in the last general election had contributed to the MCA’s loss of parliamentary and state seats.

“To stop opposition parties to continue deceiving the people, efforts for an all-out war must begin now. I call on all Youth members to prepare for cyber war.

“We understand that blogs were a mainpublicity media in the last general election while Facebook and Twitter are expected to become the primary media in the coming general election. MCA candidates cannot neglect the Internet war in the coming general election,” he said at the MCA Youth annual general assembly.
