Secretary General of Muhammadiyah Youth: Young Generation Must Play a Role in the 2024 Election

Secretary General of the Muhammadiyah Youth Central Leadership (Sekjen PP Pemuda Muhammadiyah) Najih Prasetyo encouraged the entire young generation to take advantage of the momentum of the 2024 Election, to maximize the role of youth in the national political arena."We must welcome the upcoming political momentum by maximizing the role of the younger generation in national politics," he said in a written statement, Sunday (8/10).Najih sees that currently the political conversation in Indonesia is still busy and noisy with things that are less productive. One of them is related to the phenomenon of political dynasties developing in the country. According to him, many people still misunderstand the practice of political dynasties."In the midst of our political culture which is not mature enough, many people like to simplify the meaning of political dynasty. Some people even use the phrase political dynasty simply to attack someone's personal character. Such character assassination actually further degrades the quality of our democracy and politics," he said. Najih.Najih also revealed a number of global facts in several developed countries that are not so noisy about the question of political dynasties. He explained that in several developed countries, the practice of political dynasties is normal. In fact, countries like America also experience the phenomenon of political dynasties."For example, this can be seen from the political practices of the Bush, Clinton or even Kennedy families. The most recent and quite phenomenal is the emergence of Jason Tredeau, Prime Minister of Canada. Tredeau has succeeded in showing himself to be a representative of the younger generation with his various breakthroughs in formulating regulations that are compatible with the current situation. "For your information, Juson Trudeau is the eldest son of Pierre Tredau, a former Canadian PM who served in the 70s and 80s. Jason's elite political background does not mean he is isolated and marginalized in the Canadian political arena," he explained.Reflecting on this global phenomenon, according to Najih, Indonesian people need to see opportunities for the emergence of a young generation, rather than being busy with the hustle and bustle of swimmers."In my opinion, rather than being busy building personal sentiments towards political figures who are currently being born, it would be better for us to seize the opportunity. The opportunity to overthrow the practice of gerontocracy (rule by the old), and then encourage the younger generation to lead this nation," he said.He continued, in the upcoming elections, more than 50 percent of voters will be the younger generation. this opportunity needs to be maximized for mcarry out regeneration of parties and political systems. The younger generation must appear to fill Indonesian democracy with their ideas and monumental works. Of course, while remaining oriented towards the applicable regulations and constitution."We must avoid personal sentiments and character assassination of someone. At the same time, as Indonesia's young generation, we must appear to prove the quality of the young generation by presenting political practices that are rational, intelligent and solutions for the betterment of the nation," he said.
