Party encourages youths

THE Social Democratic Liberal Party believes the wisdom of youths should not be underestimated.

SODELPA general secretary Pio Tabaiwalu said the party respected that the younger generation were more exposed and better resourced than their parents to make responsible decisions on matters of national importance.

"SODELPA does not doubt the capacity of our youths to engage in discussions with respect to their interests and needs, leading up to the national elections in September," he said.

"The party appreciates that though our younger voters will have barely remembered the political upheavals of 1987 and 2000, they would have felt the impact of those events one way or the other."

Mr Tabaiwalu said many families directly suffered following the two upheavals.
