Jersey youngsters wanted for Commonwealth Youth Parliament

Young people from Jersey could represent the island in a debate on how governments are run.

The organisers of the Commonwealth Youth Parliament are looking for two people from Jersey for the debate in London later this year.

The aim of the Youth Parliament is to strengthen democracy in the Commonwealth.

Organisers want two people aged 18-29 to represent the island in the debate in December.

Constable Len Norman, chairman of the Jersey Commonwealth Parliamentary Association branch, said "Young people from Jersey have attended the first four Youth Commonwealth Parliaments and always found the event to be a fascinating experience.

"I would encourage any young person with relevant skills and experience to put their name forward."
