Council to meet with youths

THE newly-formed SODELPA youth council has started work on its youth manifesto that is expected to be fed into the party's main manifesto.

Council president Peter Waqavonovono said in the next few days, the council would be meeting with young people around the country and getting their views on what should formulate the manifesto.

"Already a few young people have started sending us their issues and solutions. I can say, this idea of a youth manifesto has been met with a lot of excitement and young people are happy to engage," Mr Waqavonovono said.

He said the council was hoping to get the final draft of the youth manifesto to the party's national executive council by the end of next month.

He said the council was focused on building a vibrant youth council and a youth voting block within the party.

"So far there has been an overwhelming support from youth groups and leaders towards the youth council. Already we are also reaching out to other political parties and offering assistance with their youth works.

"Our journey towards a new democracy is a shared vision, and we are working with other parties and as many people as we can to see this journey through."
