In order to gain confidence of the people towards Umno and Barisan Nasional ahead of the 14th General Election (GE14), he said the committee had adopted various approaches including a social media campaign featuring short videos, infographics, newspaper clippings, caricatures and posters about Umno.

He said the committee was being expanded at the branch level to strengthen the Umno cyber-machinery in defying defamatory attacks from the opposition.

"Prior to this, we set up the Umno Information Technology and Social Media committee at the division level nationwide, with every division having 40 members and I hope this bureau machinery could be expanded to double efforts before GE14," he said.

Ahmad, who is also International Trade and Industry deputy minister, said this to reporters after officiating an IT briefing and special dialogue on GE14 for Pasir Salak Umno division at Chenderong Balai, near here today.
