National Youth Parliamentarians travel to St. Kitts for joint assembly, with one Bill and two Resolutions down for debate

Ahead of the impending general elections here, an eight-person contingent from the National Youth Parliament Association will travel to St. Christopher and Nevis today, November 23, to participate in the inaugural sitting of the Joint Youth Assembly.

The National Youth Parliament will join the St. Kitts National Youth Parliament Association to execute this initiative on Friday, November 25.

During the sitting, three legislative items will be tabled: The Age of Majority (Amendment) Bill, 2022, along with a Resolution to Commission a Health Investigatory Select Committee, and a Resolution to Promote Integrity and Efficiency within the Civil Service.

The Joint Youth Assembly is one of the key tenets under the joint agreement signed by both organizations in February this year.

The creation of a formal relationship will cement the organizations’ mandate to advocate on issues that are important to youth while members develop their skills and capacity.

The contingent will return home on Saturday, November 26.
