THE National Federation Party says it will focus on developing youths in the country particularly realising the important role they play.

Party leader Professor Biman Prasad said young people positively transformed society, especially through their public and political participation to create a fully democratic society.

Mr Prasad said NFP had a strong desire to involve young people in making decisions that affected their lives to help foster democratic deficit and development processes of democratic renewal among young people who felt excluded and disengaged.

The party believes in strengthening the existing National Youth Policy by including effective and beneficial strategies that empower young people to actively influence and shape the political agenda.
