The 13th election in Malaysia is coming soon and everybody is still puzzling with the exact day of it. All these while the government is ruled by the alliance of three main races parties. Somehow, with the emergence of technology, more youngsters are taking more active roles in politics. This paper gives a deep insight with the current scenario of political landscape in Malaysia. Almost 700 questionnaires were distributed to find the voice of the young voters. Three main scopes of social, economics and politics became the highlights of the survey. The findings show that most generation Y requires changes in many aspects of life in the country. The generation also has accepted the concept of one Malaysia instead of believing in ethnic based party when voting. In other words, the credibility of a candidate in election should be given more priority instead of other factors like race and religious belief.
