KOTA KINABALU: Parti Warisan Youth chief Datuk Azis Jamman says he is staying out of party polls as he wants to prove that he is willing to sacrifice for the sake of the party.

The 47-year-old said Warisan was in the process of "going young", especially with Undi18 being an important aspect of politics and elections.

"So we must be brave to go young and focus on the youth. We must make sacrifices and this is one I am willing to make," he said when asked about his decision not to defend his position in the party on Friday (Aug 26).

Azis said the average age of leaders and committee members in the party is below 50.

"Warisan is the best party for the younger generation," he said.

"I want to send a message to our supporters as well, that position is not the most important," Azis said.

He also said that he would accept any decision not to choose him as a candidate for the Sepanggar parliamentary seat in the coming general election.

"I'll leave the decision to our party president to decide," Azis said, adding that he believed that the people still accepted him in Sepanggar.

Asked if he was ready to take up any position if the party president offered it, Aziz said he would.

Warisan is having its annual general meeting and party polls on Friday (Aug 26) and Saturday (Aug 27).
