PBB new wing awaits RoS nod


KUCHING: Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) is now waiting for approval from the Registrar of Societies (RoS) to set up its new Pergerakan Belia wing.

Chief Political Secretary to the Premier, Fazzrudin Abdul Rahman said the party is leaving it to RoS to process their application.

“In the last PBB Triennial General Meeting (TGM), we have approved the setting up of the wing for members aged 18 to 28.

“But even before that, we have collected a pool of names of those who have registered their interest to join the (new wing) of the party,” he said.

He said this when met by reporters today after officiating at the closing of the Matang Jaya Youth Open Day here.

“I don’t have the exact figure statewide, but for Tupong, I’m being told that there are over 1,000 applicants,” said the Tupong assemblyman.

Fazzrudin who is deputy chairman of the committee to set up the new wing expects all branches of PBB statewide to form the wing at branch level after the approval of RoS.

Fazzrudin said the new wing will inculcate the necessary political knowledge to youths.

“It will also incorporate the values of politics and how it will benefit the development of the community,” he said.

In terms of activities, he said given the age difference of members in the new wing compared to other wings in PBB,  the new wing is expected to organise activities that caters to particular niches.

Earlier, in his speech at the programme he said the state government has provided an ecosystem where youths can prosper.

“The Premier has stressed this, so that there is a continuation of leadership in the future.

“We want to train youths so when the time comes for them to assume leadership and be a leader in their own right, they would already possess the knowledge and experience that is needed,” he said.
