Abstract

The most effective element in determining political perception and support for political parties is source of information. Resource access information by reading and responding to such information will affect one's stance either be fully believing or denying the information obtained. In the context of electoral politics in Malaysia, before the General Election (GE) 1995, the source of political information only relies on the mainstream media of electronic media (television and radio) and printed media (the press), especially the elderly and outside the city seem to favor the ruling Barisan Nasional (BN). But in the 1999 general election, the use of alternative media such as the Internet and SMS have expanded the source of information, especially among young people and in urban areas. This situation has changed the political landscape of the country that had seen the previous election in 1999 in almost all regions, including urban areas and the majority of the young voters who supported BN before have turned to support opposition parties, namely PKR, PAS and DAP. Based on the questionnaire distributed to 300 respondents in the constituency of Batu Pahat, it is found that respondents who accessed the electronic and print media are more likely to support the BN while respondents who access alternative sources such as blogs and social media are more likely to support the parties in the opposition. This is likely due to the fact that electronic and print media are controlled by the ruling party of BN, while most blogs and social media blogger are controlled by the pro-opposition netizen. This situation has been ongoing since the general election in 1999 until the 2013 general election.. As a result, new media or the internet has changed the political landscape of the country and sparked a broad democratization of information faster than the mainstream media.
