SHAH ALAM – Unlike the 2018 Selangor polls, DAP's Kampung Tunku candidate Lim Yi Wei has noticed a stark difference in voter preference this upcoming state elections - they prefer online ceramahs.

She said more people are tuning into social media platforms such as Facebook and Tik Tok live sessions to listen to ceramahs.

She said DAP is also adapting to these changes to gain voters’ trust.

Furthermore, guaranteeing high voter turnout presents its own set of hurdles as Selangor voters have been participating in federal and state elections at the same time, she said.

Given that many voters participated in the federal election last November, there exists a misconception that their participation in the upcoming state election is unnecessary.

"Many voters lack historical context to separate Selangor state election with federal. We constantly need to remind them that this is a state elections which is different from federal polls."

When asked on DAP's decision to recruit six new members and their capabilities, Lim says the move is to rejuvenate the party by promoting experienced senior members to more challenging roles including contesting at "dangerous seats" while introducing fresh faces with talent.

On DAP's demographics, Lim said the oldest member is 57 with five women under 40. The party also strives to fulfill its 30 per cent quota for female representation.
