PPBM youth wing chief Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman.

BUKIT MERTAJAM: PPBM youth wing (Armada) chief Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman today announced that he will contest for the Armada chief’s post in the party election 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 Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

“I will contest to exercise my democratic right and we will not stop others from contesting in the PPBM polls.

“We should also show our support (to those contesting) because Armada is the core and backbone of PPBM. We should ensure that this healthy political culture is maintained nationwide,” he told reporters here today after officiating the FitMalaysia Programme for the northern zone here.

Yesterday, Mahathir was reported to have said there is a possibility that the party’s inaugural election would be held this year.
