All for youths

Avinesh Gopal
Tuesday, April 15, 2014

THE proposed National Youth Party believes youths need to be represented well in the new government.

Its interim president/leader Nayagodamu Korovou said when the proposed party talked about the future, it was talking about youths.

"Older political parties have used youth votes to their advantage in past elections but mostly forget them when they win the elections," he said.

"We need to change that attitude and that is why we are registering a political party just for the youths."

Mr Korovou said the proposed party wanted youths to get the biggest share in the national budgets, adding that it has created ideas for youths and the nation.

He also encouraged youths who have not yet registered to vote in the general election to do so.
