Australia supports Fiji Youth Parliament Forum

December 15, 2014 11:29 pm

The Australian government has shown its support towards the Youth Parliament Forum that is underway this week.

Australia’s High Commissioner to Fiji Margaret Twomey says the forum will provide youths an opportunity to understand how members of the Parliament are accountable to the people and how they can influence the public.

Opening the Forum last night, Twomey says most youths don’t understand the role of Parliament.

‘’This week will give you the opportunity what it’s like to sit in the parliament chamber to soak in the history and understand where Fiji has come from. Importantly this week it’s also about where Fiji has headed. Together we can work to find out how we can get there. We can figure out what things to change and what things need to stay the same I encourage you to talk to others and, share ideas’’.

More than 180 youths applied to be part of the Forum but only 50 were chosen.

The group is having thematic sessions with various government bodies before a dialogue session tomorrow.

They will convene parliament on Thursday morning with the Speaker of the House in attendance.
