Pakatan Harapan (PH) Sarawak plans to field more young people in the forthcoming general election.

PH Sarawak Youth Committee election director Simon Siah of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) revealed there is a high probability that youths will be fielded in a few seats.

“Our target is to have stronger youth participation and representation in politics, not only to stand in the next election but also in the future,” he told a press conference at PKR headquarters here yesterday.

The press conference was held to unveil PH Sarawak Youth Committee’s line-up which is headed by Mordi Bimol of Democratic Action Party (DAP) and assisted by deputies Abdul Raafidin Majidi (PKR) and Fadillah Sabali (Amanah).

The other members are secretary Saifunnizam Sam (PKR), treasurer Gusti Ardanishah (Amanah), communication director Kelvin Yii (DAP) and mobilisation director Sia Ai Kiew (DAP).

“Our manifesto, which was announced in April last year, will also address the concerns of young people,” added Siah without elaborating on the potential candidates or seats.

Meanwhile, Mordi pointed out that PH Sarawak Youth is committed to get directly and actively involved to face the Barisan Nasional (BN) in the coming general election.

“In addition, a few potential candidates from PH Sarawak Youth will be standing in the election. We will mobilise our youth machinery to help all the candidates.

“We are confident that the PH Sarawak Youth manifesto, which has been handed to the PH state leadership, will be considered for inclusion in the PH Sarawak manifesto,” he said.

The move, added Mordi, reflects the maturity and openness within the PH coalition where the voices of young people are always being heard by the PH leadership.

“PH Sarawak Youth is optimistic that this collaboration will help PH in the coming election.”

Committee members Athina Sim and Mohd Salleh were also present at the press conference.
