KOTA KINABALU, April 20 – All divisions of Sabah Bersatu have been urged to reach out to Undi-18 voters to have their voices heard and translated into votes for the party in the upcoming 15th General Election (GE15).

Undi18 refers to lowering the voting age from 21 to 18. GE15 will be the first general election in the country’s history where 18-year-olds can vote

Sabah Bersatu’s information chief, Khairul Firdaus Akhbar Khan, said it was the responsibility of each party branch in the state to provide information on the importance of young voters in forming a strong government.

“Back then, when we were 18, the priority was to learn and have fun. It’s the same with young people today, that’s why there has to be an involvement with young people, including organizing programs involving them as well as providing assistance to them, as they will shape our nation,” he said during a fast-breaking event with the media last night.

Khairul Firdaus, who is also the head of Sabah Bersatu Batu Sapi Division, said he was confident that with this approach, the youngsters would better understand their role and be able to make the best choice in GE15.

He said that among the youth issues that needed to be addressed were the lack of job opportunities, insufficient training centers for the youth and awareness of the importance of technology.

Meanwhile, Khairul Firdaus said that the leaders of Sabah’s three main parties, namely Sabah Bersatu leader Datuk Hajiji Noor, Sabah leader Sabah Umno Datuk Seri Bung Moktar Radin and Warisan chairman Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal, should sit together to discuss the development of Sabah. .

“It’s my personal opinion, the three should sit together because they have experience and know what’s best for Sabah,” he said. — Bernama
