Bersatu's Armada (youth wing) chief Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman today announced that he will contest for the wing's chief post at the party elections this year.
Syed Saddiq, who is also the Youth and Sports Minister, said he was in full support of the culture of democracy as encouraged by party chairperson Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
“I will contest to exercise my democratic right and we will not stop others from contesting in the Bersatu polls.
“We should also show our support (to those contesting) because Armada as the core and backbone of Bersatu, should ensure that this healthy political culture is maintained nationwide,” he told reporters in Bukit Mertajam today.
He was met after officiating the FitMalaysia Programme for the northern zone at the Seberang Perai Municipal Council (MPSP) Sports and Recreational Complex.
Yesterday, Mahathir reportedly said there is a possibility that the party’s inaugural election would be held this year. - Bernama
