Youth parliament to be reconvened

Minister of State in the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information Floyd Green has announced that the Youth Parliament is to be reintroduced.

"There was a time that there use to be a Youth Parliament. We believe it is critical to reinforcing ideas of democracy, rights and responsibilities ... so we are going to bring back the Youth Parliament. We want to bring it back this year," he said at a meeting with youth group leaders.

The Jamaica National Youth Parliament was introduced in the early 2000's and formed part of the annual Youth Month activities organised by the National Centre for Youth Development.
