Blogger For Public Office - Nik Nazmi
Nik Nazmi is the candidate standing for elections under PKR for Kelana Jaya.
He is all of 26 years old, but obviously young blood is what we need to move this country forward. This guy grabs the bull by the horns with his address of issues that Malaysians love to sweep under the carpet far too much.
The National Economic Policy for one.
Here is a bit of his personal biodata which can be obtained from his website:
Full Name: Nik Nazmi bin Nik Ahmad
Date of Birth: 12 Januari 1982
Place of Birth: Kuala Lumpur
Residence: Petaling Jaya
Primary: SRK La Salle Petaling Jaya
Secondary: Kolej Melayu Kuala Kangsar
Bachelor's Degree: King’s College, University of London
Somewhere along there, he managed to pick up some impressive oratorial skills. Check out this video where he speaks of equal rights in eradicating poverty without considering race or religion.
This is a young man who is very passionate about the future of his country. It genuinely matters to him that our social issues be corrected before we take positive steps forward.
It's not about making quick money for him, or being sent overseas, or getting discounts, reserve land, monopolising race and religion.
If more young Malay men had half his ideals, this country would be world renown.
