Some people think younger people are not suitable for important positions in government. Some think it will be a good idea for younger people to take on these positions. Discuss both views and give your opinion.
Nowadays more and more young people hold important positions in the government. Some people think that it is a good thing，while others argue that it is not suitable. Discuss both these views and give your opinion.
As a growing number of new faces entered political arena, the eligibility of young people for government affairs has aroused an intense debate. Some people contend that people in 20s or 30s are not ideal candidates for policy-makers or positions alike. Others, however, disagree with this statement. In this essay, these two diametrically opposed stances will be examined before my ideas are elaborated.
On the one hand, it is argued that politics is not an outlet for the young to pursue their career goals. For one thing, compared with their veteran counterparts, young politicians seem inexperienced and unsophisticated, which makes them experientially disadvantaged in decision-making. For another, elder government officials are more likely to play an active role in political campaigns due to their long-established influence and hard-earned reputation. In other words, the general public is seemingly more supportive of rules and regulations enforced by those who have served in the government for a longer period.
On the other hand, others are convinced that the younger generation is equally qualified for authoritative positions. First and foremost, recruiting more young people could reinvigorate leadership and yield a vibrant political structure. For instance, a more dimensional and updated welfare system can be expected since younger minds are less likely to be confined to conventions and therefore, in this regard, are fairly competitive. Furthermore, the ever-changing world calls for collaboration between the young and the elder in order to take a nation forward and bring about greater changes.
As far as I am concerned, competence, instead of age, should be deemed the decisive indicator regarding one’s eligibility for political participation. Another equally crucial factor is the need to cater to the next generation’ burgeoning demand for engagement in either national or international politics. Meanwhile, it is also advisable that there should be “age of candidacy”, meaning that any citizen is supposed to meet the minimum age requirement, as many countries have institutionalized this “policy”.
