KUCHING: The move by Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) to form a new wing for those aged 18 to 28 has received the support of a GPS component party.
Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) acting president Datuk Joseph Salang Gandum described the move as in the right direction and in line with changing times.
Asked if his party would follow suit, he said PRS would deliberate on it.
“We will be discussing the same issue during our supreme council meeting on Jan 22,” he told New Sarawak Tribune yesterday (Jan 10).
On another matter, Salang said his party would also discuss an issue concerning the party’s constitution.
“This will be among the matters to be discussed during our Triennial Delegates Conference (TDC) which will be held in the near future,” he said.
On Sunday (Jan 9), Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg, who is also the PBB president, said that his party was establishing a new wing aimed at accommodating youth members between the ages of 18 and 28.
He said that the party was adjusting itself to the aspirations of the young in particular to adapt to changing times and the current political situation.
