THE newly-established national youth council of the Social Democratic and Liberal Party (SODELPA) is conducting a survey to get the views of youths about voting in the general election this September.

Council interim president Peter Waqavonovono said the feedback from the survey would be used to formulate the youth manifesto that would be fed into the party's main manifesto.

"The SODELPA youth wing has been given the green light to work on a youth manifesto that will feed into the main manifesto," he said.

"As we prepare for general election come September, we are aware that many young people want to be engaged and affect party politics."

Mr Waqavonovono said many young people had started engaging with the party.

"We are working to effectively gather more views that will be formulated into our youth manifesto. We have promised the party's general secretary that by the end of March, a completed youth manifesto will be delivered to his desk.

"We have engaged volunteers throughout Fiji, who will distribute and collect points, issues and solutions that can be incorporated into youth manifesto."

He said the questionnaire for the youth survey was designed after careful consideration and discussions with young SODELPA members.

"It contains serious questions that we need your views on. There are also spaces where you can elaborate or bring up issues that you deem relevant."
