Youth meet

Nasik Swami
Friday, July 18, 2014

AFTER three mini conferences for the youth in the Central, Western and Northern divisions, the NFP is preparing to host a national youth conference later this month.

Party youth steering committee chairperson Indrani Krishna said the resounding success of the three mini conferences showed that youths were concerned about their future.

"Youth want a peaceful and prosperous future and they understand perfectly well that this can only be provided by a party that's in government will enforce the rule of law and be honest, accountable and transparent," Ms Krishna said.

She said the young people at various mini conferences appreciative of NFP's plans in government.

"The youth raised pertinent issues affecting them like high cost of living, unemployment and the coup culture which has plagued Fiji since 1987.

"They know that NFP is the only party which is not tainted by any of the four coups," Ms Krishna claimed.

"As far as education is concerned, our youth, while appreciative of the loan scheme, are concerned with what the future holds for them once they graduate because of the depressed job market.

The national youth conference will be held on July 26 at Jai Narayan College.

This will be followed by a music festival and a talanoa session with the party leader Professor Biman Prasad, president Tupou Draunidalo and other NFP candidates.
