ON 20 June 2010, at The Nut Graph’s first Found in Conversation event, on creativity and innovation in politics, three young politicians tackled questions about politics post-March 2008.
While Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin talked about challenges within his party for much-needed reforms to happen, DAP national publicity secretary Tony Pua assured the audience that the Pakatan Rakyat will definitely be around in the next elections. Parti Keadilan Rakyat’s Nurul Izzah Anwar also fielded questions about being a woman in politics.
All three also answered questions about how the electorate has changed since March 2008, and about surviving in the next general election. They also took on hard-hitting questions from the audience, including on how each party would support education and the arts; real innovation within each party; and whether Umno needs to lose power before it can change.
The one-and-a-half hour event was moderated by The Nut Graph editor Jacqueline Ann Surin. Full recording of the conversation is available at PopRadeeo.
