Update: 7:48PM YOUTHS in Ba have been urged to exercise their rights and go to the polls come September 17.

Minister for Youth and Sports Viliame Naupoto made this call as he noted the Governments recognition of the need to empower and involve youths in decision-making by reducing the voting age to 18.

Registration for eligible voters has closed and I remind all that have registered that you now have the right and privilege to decide, he said while officiating at the Digicel Ba Riverside Platinum carnival last Thursday.

Ba Town special administrator Praveen Bala said the ministers advice to the youths of Ba was timely.

We will surely take heed of his advice to maximise our resources and empower the young people of Ba, especially in sports as this town is known for soccer, Mr Bala was quoted saying in a government statement issued this afternoon.
