"It cannot be denied that the previous government has given opportunities to the younger generation, but we hope that in the future more young people will be given the opportunity to govern the country because they will be the heirs of our country one day," the Chuping native told Bernama here. today.

Natthavuth, 26, who is a former engineer at an international company, said that young people are now wise to judge which leaders are suitable to govern the country.

The same views were shared by Pramoot a/l Puan , 52, from PN-Bersatu , who is the coalition's candidate for the Indera Kayangan state seat.

"The young people are actually wise in making assessments. We want to represent them and bring their voices to the higher ups," said Pramoot, who has worked in banking for over 20 years.

The local said the voice of these young people is important in driving the country to greater heights and should be emphasised.
