In less than 24 hours, the national youth council will host its first historic sitting of the National Youth Parliament on Wednesday March 23, 2022.
In February, 31 Youth Parliamentarians were inducted into the youth parliament and then devised into two groups – Proposing and Opposing. These parliamentarians have been appointed for a one-year tenure supported by the NYC’s institutional framework.
According to a release, Daniel Panthier, one of the core members of the youth parliament passed just days after his induction however, several members of both teams have devoted their involvement in the youth parliament to representing their fallen parliamentarian and the views he expressed within his short engagement with the NYP.
The parliament will take place on the 23 and 24 of March, 2022 at the House of Assembly and is sponsored and supported by the Government of Dominica through the House of Assembly, the Ministry of Youth, the Ministry of Education and the Youth Development Division.
