How Involved Are Youth In Politics?

Youth participation in politics, as politicians and as voters, has been making headlines. We open up a conversation about it by first, exploring why some analysts have suggested that young politicians aren’t stepping up enough. Then, we speak with UMNO’s Shahril Hamdan to find out how young people can navigate the political scene. Finally, we discuss if the events of the last two years alienated young voters.
