KUALA LUMPUR, 16 March 2009: The Kedah Gerakan Youth has proposed the Barisan Nasional (BN) supreme council membership include a representative each from Wanita, Youth, Putera and Puteri wings of BN coalition parties.
Its chief, Tan Keng Liang, said the proposal was with the hope of creating a more dynamic BN for all Malaysians, irrespective of age or gender.
In a statement here today, he hoped Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and his deputy, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, would consider the proposal as one of the reforms needed for implementation in BN.
Tan, who is also the wing’s vice-chairperson, said that since the formation of BN, spearheaded by Tun Abdul Razak Hussein in 1973, membership in the supreme council had remained at three from each coalition party. — Bernama
