The youth organization Junior Chamber International (JCI) has plans to establish a political academy. The aim is to create politicians, without interference from the political parties. This is said by Marvin Pollack, who sat as new JCI President has been elected.
The plan for a political program reflects the determination of the JCI to come to mean more to society. “If young people have ambitions to become a politician they have to be trained. They are now being trained by the political parties that unfortunately the people training with the same mistakes they have made.”
Pollack would do it differently. “We are young people with integrity, diplomacy, attitude and leadership learning, independent of the political parties. This will help to deliver better political leaders.” JCI will do this together with the government. The aim is to deliver in 2015 the first group.
Another intention Pollack has, is more to bet on issues they have strong in the members. “JCI Suriname has six divisions, but sometimes we have a lack of people to implement projects’s. Why don’t we let people do what they like,” said the president.
