THE Social Democratic Liberal Party says young people will decide the country's next government as they make up a significant voting bloc in the September 17 general election.

And the party's youth wing is committed to ensuring young people are equipped with the truth before they cast their votes.

Youth wing president Peter Waqavonovono said youths were expected to gather in their droves to welcome the manifesto.

"We understand that youths inclusiveness, meaningful engagement and rights are represented in the manifesto," Mr Waqavonovono said.

He said following the launch tomorrow, the party's young representatives would travel to towns and communities to discuss the manifesto with the people.

"We don't come to boast about how we use taxpayers' money.

"We don't come with roads, electricity or water. We are coming with the truth."

Mr Waqavonovono said young people had joined the party because they understood the importance of their voices and were not ashamed to embrace their rights.
