Youth assembly not a gimmick, says Perak MB

The move to set up the Perak youth state assembly is not merely for show or exhibition but is a responsibility to ensure the future of the next generation. Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Zambry Abd Kadir said the state assembly was a test for the delegates to ensure issues, specifically related to youth, could be debated. "It is the best platform for youth in the state to highlight new ways to look at certain issues and exhibiting openness in debating issue related to the interests of the people and state," he said when opening the youth Perak assembly in Ipoh today. He said the trust and responsibility of the members picked for the youth state assembly was not in the least diluted despite not undergoing a selection process, such as a general election.  "The selection of delegates has taken into account the representation from among the younger generation who are involved in numerous youth movements and non-governmental organisations." Zambry said there were 900,000 youths in Perak of whom only 20% were active in associations and organisations. The youth state assembly has 60 members. – Bernama, March 5, 2016.]]>
