[ST] GE excites youth leader
FIRST-TIME voter and undergraduate Lim Yan Pin is thrilled to find out that he now lives in a Single-Member Constituency, following the release of the Electoral Boundaries Report on Thursday. Previously part of the Marine Parade GRC, the area that the 21-year-old resides in is now Mountbatten SMC. Mr Lim told RazorTV after he received his NextGen Leadership certificate from Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong, that he is interested in politics as 'it is a means to help people improve their lives." He is one of 25 youth leaders who graduated from the 8-month leadership development programme organised by Marine Parade Leadership Foundation and South East CDC. The programme aims to nurture young community leaders by putting them through workshops and attachments to grassroots organisation and Voluntary Welfare Organisations.
