Election guide for youths

A YOUTH-BASED non government organisation has launched a civic education campaign to guide youths to the 2014 election.

The 'Want My Vote in 2014?' campaign, launched on Wednesday, focuses on educating young people to vote along political party policy lines.

Aspire Network executive director Kaajal Kumar said the campaign featured young people from around Fiji and cross cutting issues that affected the young.

The youth-based NGO is a multiracial and apolitical NGO that was formed out of a movement of young people who came from middle and poor families but became successful in life.

"The NGO aims to improve living standards of disadvantaged and rural young people. The NGO believes this can only be achieved if Fiji has a stable government which focuses on the needs of its people," Ms Kumar said.
