SODELPA'S youth wing has started receiving submissions from various youth leaders around the country regarding how the party should formulate its manifesto for youths.

Confirming this yesterday, the party's newly-appointed interim president for the youth wing, Peter Waqavonovono, said the submissions were coming from various constituencies.

"We have been receiving a lot of messages of support and pledges from young people in the different constituencies and from faith-based and urban-based youth groups and already, young people are sending through their issues that they hope will be addressed by SODELPA's policy," Mr Waqavonovono said.

He said SODELPA was committed to ensuring that young people's issues were addressed responsibly.

"Youth representatives from the youth wing will be represented on the national executive committee and also the party's management board. Youth representatives will also be active in the different constituencies."

He said he had also contacted youth leaders around the country informing them of the work the party's youth wing was doing.

"In a few months time, we will all begin the journey towards democracy, where SODELPA is a real player. I am offering to share this journey with many young people who want to fight for democracy."
