KUCHING: A new wing will be set up in Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) to bring youth aged between 18 and 28 on board as the party seeks to stay on course well into the future.

The party constitution will be amended in the coming months to bring this to fruition, said PBB president Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg.

Explaining the rationale behind the move, he said PBB being a dynamic party was now calibrating itself to meet the aspirations of the young, as well as all Sarawakians, going forward.

“As we all know this is the digital era and the needs of the community are changing,” he said, adding while similar to the party’s youth and women movements the new wing would focus of this specific group of Sarawakians.

“From that angle, we will move towards the policy we have set, which is towards 2030 (when Sarawak aspires to be a high income state),” he said after chairing the party’s supreme council meeting at Borneo Convention Centre Kuching here on Sunday night (Jan 9).

Abang Johari, who is Chief Minister, stressed the importance of having stability across the board.

“That is why all those who have been given the responsibility to govern and manage Sarawak must be forward looking and visionaries, they have to adjust to the new vision of Sarawak.”

He revealed that a committee had been set up to look into the implementation of the new wing.

“Between now and April, meetings will be held in all PBB sub-branches to discuss the matter.

“We will have our triennial general meeting in June and we will amend the constitution by then,” he added.
