SODELPA's youth wing discusses manifesto

THE youth component of SODELPA's manifesto was a result of a thorough consultation of youth members around the country, says party youth wing president Peter Waqavonovono.

Following the release of the manifesto last Friday, Mr Waqavonovono said youth leaders had joined the party and would be taking the manifesto to the people.

"The independence and structural support of the National Youth Council as well as a 200 per cent tax rebate to employers taking on first time job seekers are but snippets of the manifesto summary made available to the citizens of Fiji," he said.

Mr Waqavonovono said the manifesto called for a restructure of the National Youth Service Scheme and the National Employment Centre.

"The National Employment Centre is less sensitive to the plight of youths and is not youth- friendly.

"A restructure will see the centre actually advocate for people registered with them and look into creating meaningful opportunities for young people."

He also claimed that for the first time, the manifesto acknowledged the importance of creative and cultural arts in Fiji.

"Encouraging the full emancipation of the arts in Fiji and restructuring the school curriculum to encourage youth participation is very encouraging," Mr Waqavonovono said.

The vocal youth leader has urged young people to join SODELPA and vote out the coup culture.
