Currently, Tun Faisal holds the post of Youth Chief for Bunga Kiambang (Putrajaya) Division.
Malaysia Digest: Would you agree that alternative media played a big role in the outcome of the last General Election (GE)?
Opposition has been using alternative media for their survival since 1999. This means they have been using it as a communication tool to survive for the past 10 years. We managed to reduce the gap (in internet presence) by the efforts made by our Cybertroopers unit which was established under UMNO Youth Media Unit before GE 2004, but unfortunately, after GE 2004, we failed to keep the momentum going and have were left very far behind in 2008 GE.
