Workers’ Party Youth Wing elects new leadership in its biennial conference

SINGAPORE — The Workers’ Party Youth Wing (WPYW) held its biennial conference on Saturday, electing a new set of leaders for the 2023-2025 term.

Nicole Seah, 37, was elected as the President of the WPYW, with Texas Hong, 38, as the Vice-President, and Fikril Hakim Bin Azril, 31, as the Secretary.

In addition to the primary office holders, eight Executive Committee Members were also chosen to play crucial roles in the upcoming term.

They are:

  • Jackson Au, 34
  • Kelvin Yap, 33
  • Marissa Lee, 31
  • Muhammad Ihsan, 32
  • Pamela Pang, 38
  • Paul Singh, 34
  • Saiful Adnan, 25
  • Shania Lan, 32

Seah, in her address, thanked the outgoing executive committee headed by Member of Parliament for Aljunied GRC, Leon Perera, for their dedication, experience, and innovation during their tenure, especially as they navigated through the challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic.

“We were elected in the thick of Covid restrictions. Calls were conducted via Zoom, engagements were limited to a few social media webinars,” she said. However, with the easing of restrictions, the previous committee was able to launch a podcast channel and successfully held various events such as a policy challenge, beach clean-up, and futsal tournament.

Seah extended a warm welcome to the incoming executive committee members, reminding them of their responsibilities in continuing the legacy left by their predecessors. She also acknowledged the possible challenges in the near future with the upcoming Presidential elections and the General Elections.

She urged the members to remember their roles as the younger generation of the Party. “We are the lifeblood of the Party and we are responsible for continuity. We must make sure in all we do, that the Party continues to remain Relevant and with a deep understanding of what makes young Singaporeans tick,” she stated.

Recognizing the significant issues facing young Singaporeans such as climate change, social diversity, cost of living, housing affordability, and job prospects, she urged the new leadership to ensure these concerns are heard, known, and addressed.

Seah concluded her address by encouraging the members to see themselves as builders of the future. “Instead of tearing down, we seek to create. And in doing so, we leave this society in a better place.”
