Youth & Politics: Langkah Sheraton, UNDI18 & Getting Into Politics

Why bother voting? This is a troubling question that some young people are asking following the events of Langkah Sheraton. That’s the question Roshan Kanesan tackles today in conjunction with International Youth Day with YB Lim Yi Wei, Kampung Tunku Assemblywoman, and activist Qyira Yusri, co-founder of UNDI18.

They explore the role of youths in politics -- from getting them to vote, encouraging active political engagement, and ultimately getting them on the ballots themselves.
