(Phnom Penh): Youths are successors to seniors in handling political tasks and leading the country since they are the nation’s pillar. Youths involving in political tasks is a positive sign as it shows speediness in building leadership and this can influence the younger generation.
Through a photo shared on Facebook, three youths wear different shirts of three different parties and hold different political tendencies. They, however, stand close to each other with a smile of their faces while their political leaders are running campaigns for the fourth mandate of commune council election in 2017.
The three youths stand close to each other at an unknown farm. One male wears a white t-shirt, and a white cap that have CPP’s logo, another male wears a white t-shirt and a blue cap that have FUNCINPEC’s logo, and the other male wear a white t-shirt and a white cap that have CNRP’s logo.
The activity of these three youths standing closely illustrates that although late May is a heated period of political campaign, they seem not to be serious about political tendencies and this demonstrates that they share the same nationality. They clearly understand about politics and the country’s development.
While the campaigns for the fourth mandate of commune council election 2017 are in progress, there is the participation of youth joining the party that they like. However, they (youths in Samdech Techo Hun Sen period) have high understanding. Although they hold different political tendencies, they do not focus on individual interests, or party interest but what they want is peace for people and the nation with developments, prosperity, and sustainability.
For instance, youths at provinces currently present themselves and understand that they are aware of the progress of both development and politics. They step into the politics in order to support peace, war-free, and national integration since they understand that all youths are the pillar of the country.
In this sense, the nation has focused on training youths to be sufficiently capable in order take over the leaders in leading the country.
