Youths hold the key

FIJI'S youths could hold the key to deciding which way the September election will head and with that, political parties are doing their best to get on board those above the age of 18.

The country's oldest political party, the National Federation Party is planning a national youth conference scheduled for mid-July.

Party president Tupou Draunidalo said the party was pleased that youths were responding favourably to NFP's policies aimed at building a socially, politically and economically stable Fiji.

"Last week we had a meeting with the youths in Suva and their response was overwhelming.

"We are pleased to see that youths are aware with the policies and politics of the various parties.

"They are also unafraid to ask critical questions and want to know what the future holds for them as well as for our nation.

"We should actively court and engage the young who need to get better connected to the political history of Fiji so as to prepare themselves better for the rebuilding task that lies ahead," Ms Draunidalo said.

She said youths would take all our hopes and dreams into the future.

"So we must involve them now in very substantive ways."

More details about the conference will be made available after the party's working committee meeting scheduled for May 25 at the Tamavua Primary School in Suva.
