Political Management Training for Young Progressives

15-20 October 2018 | Pahang, Malaysia

Young members of political parties and progressive organizations will conduct the second and last part of the PMT in Pahang, Malaysia. The PMT, now on its 4th batch, continues on its usual program focusing on important key skills needed for political work. The PMT is designed as a 2-part course for training second line leaders of political parties and organizations in order for them to take on greater responsibilities and strengthen their organizations.

This batch concludes its training in Pahang, Malaysia amid the backdrop of a progressive victory in Malaysia. The last general election in Malaysia proved a watershed moment in the country's history as its opposition forces dealt the Barisan Nasional its first electoral defeat in Malaysian history. With social democrats and progressives, in coalition with other parties, now in power the venue and timing for this PMT is fortuitous. Many of the participants are also preparing for their respective country elections next year.
