39-year-old Kareem Musa Emphasizes ‘the Audacity of Youth’

Kareem Musa

At thirty-nine-years-old, Kareem Musa would be the youngest politician vying for leadership of the People’s United Party.  He represents a number of voters, as well as members of the P.U.P., who form the youth population.  But is the P.U.P. prepared for an infusion of youthful vigor into the Grand Old Party?

“We have to look to new blood.  We cannot stifle new blood, we have to encourage new blood and we have to push on.  They call it the, I think Obama said it was the audacity of hope.  We have to look at the audacity of youth.  We need to tap into our young people.  Generation Next I think they call them are Generation Now and they are knocking at our doorsteps, knocking at our door and we need to answer the door because they are ready.”

“What would have convinced you to support your party leader to continue in that position?”

“I have told him this already, more inclusivity, listen to the people out there, listen to the municipalities that are crying out right now.  Their concerns is a lot, just listen to them and let‘s get some action and give them the autonomy that they are asking for.  We don‘t have to impose our way on them.”
