Perikatan National (PN) candidate Steven Lai, vying for the Balakong constituency in Selangor, has turned heads by incorporating dance and catchy music into his political campaign. A video circulating on social media captures Lai and two supporters donning PN t-shirts, dancing to the upbeat tune of "Low" by Flo Rida while highlighting his campaign promises.
In the video, Lai enthusiastically declares, "If PN wins, Selangor hawkers are exempted from paying license fees for 5 years," and "If PN wins, Selangor will provide free childcare centers."
The video's unique approach has generated a wide range of reactions from Malaysians across the board. Some view it as a refreshing departure from the typical campaign strategies. However, the video has also attracted criticism. Some skeptics question whether dance and promises set to music are enough to ensure genuine policy changes.
