KUCHING, Jan 4: The state Pakatan Harapan (PH) coalition has set up a youth team to push for more youth candidates to be elected as representatives in the upcoming general elections (GE14).
In a joint press conference today, the Opposition coalition unveiled their line-up with DAP’s Mordi Bimol heading PH Youth.
The team includes two deputy youth chiefs who are Abdul Raafidin Majidi (PKR) and Fadillah Sabali (Amanah); Saifunnizam Sam (PKR) as secretary, and Gusti Ardaishal (Amanah) as treasurer. Meanwhile, their election director is Simon Siah (PKR), communications director is Kelvin Yii (DAP) and mobilization director is Sia Ai Kiew (DAP).
The team has activated this election machinery to go full force against Barisan Nasional (BN) in the upcoming polls.
The youth team also expressed confidence that their manifesto, which was announced in April last year and submitted to the PH leaders, will be adopted.
Without revealing any names or the number of seats they intend to contest, the youth team said many potential candidates from PH Youth would be fielded in the upcoming general elections.
“We are trying to push more young candidates forward to be candidates in the next general election and future elections because we think that it is high time that young people take charge of our own future rather than leave it to the older generations to decide the policy of the country,” Siah told reporters.
Siah, who is also Angkatan Muda Keadilan (AMK) deputy chief, said that PH Sarawak had a rather strong youth team and they would concentrate on their efforts so that young peoples’ voices could be heard. — DayakDaily
