Will Gangnam-style help Malaysia's BN get the crucial youth vote?

Malaysia's ruling Barisan Nasional Party has invited international Gangnam-style sensation South Korean entertainer Psy, to perform at a Chinese New Year concert in Penang next week.

The organisers hope to attract some 60 thousand people to the event, hopefully young voters among them.

Youths and first-time voters look set to influence the outcome of general elections due by April - polls which are expected to be very tight.
