Gabungan youths team up on Sabah rights

KOTA KINABALU - Youth movements from five political parties joined forces by forming Gabungan Muda Sabah (Sabah Youth Alliance) or GEMA Sabah, last Friday.

Its chief Jamain Sarudin said in a statement that the alliance aims to become a platform for young people in the State who are serious in fighting for the rights of Sabahans.

He said Gema Sabah is made up of youth movements from Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP), Parti Cinta Sabah (PCS), Parti Solidariti Tanah Airku (STAR), Parti Harapan Rakyat Sabah (PHRS) and Parti Perpaduan Rakyat Sabah (PPRS).

"It's time for youths to form a united team to face the coming elections," he said.

He also said that the alliance will encourage its members to support activities carried out by all the five parties.

"It's important that we're united to avoid split in the opposition as what had happened in the 13th general election," he added.

Jamain, who is also SAPP Youth Chief, expressed confidence that voters will vote for political parties that work together as a team and not the ones who are fighting alone.

On this note, he criticised some opposition party leaders whom he described as playing in a bunker and whose actions are jeopardising the opposition's chances to defeat the Barisan Nasional in the elections.

"Political bunker brings no positive benefit to the people. It must be stopped," he insisted. He said Gema Sabah continues to hope that all opposition parties would make a wise choice by forming a strategic collaboration to ensure a straight fight against the BN component parties in all the contested seats. - DE
