Abstract

This article aims to explore the extent of political participation among youth in Malaysia. Specifically, this study addressed the following questions: What are the forms of political participation involved among the youth in Malaysia? What is their level of political participation? Does the gender, educational level and residential area are related to political participation? What are the factors influencing them to participate in politics?A total of 417 respondents aged between 18-40 years were randomly selected to answer the questionnaire. In general, the study has found that respondents have a moderate level of political participation. The majority of respondents claimed they voted in the general election, and only a small number of respondents contacted the political leaders. Interest in politics is a key factor that encourages them to participate in politics. This moderate level of political participation should be taken seriously by authorities and efforts should be made to encourage the young people to engage in politics.
