Policies for youths

SODELPA says it will create more youth-related policies when it comes into power.

Party youth wing president Peter Waqavonovono said the party had received the views of thousands of youths from around the country to incorporate into their main manifesto, which is expected to be released soon.

Mr Waqavonovono said youths had filled in questionnaires and involved themselves in a number of activities organised by the party.

"The majority of respondents did not want the youth manifesto to touch on LGBTIQ rights but asked for an inclusive approach to decision-making, a balanced approach to universal equality and wanted to leave talk of same sex marriage to a democratic parliament," he said.

He said the main issue highlighted by the youths were the end of undemocratic government.

"Young people are very clear with what they want."
