Youth Parliament elections

Young People in East Lothian are asked to stand up for what they believe in

Young people from East Lothian are being asked by the Scottish Youth Parliament (SYP) to stand up for what they believe in and make a difference in their communities by standing as a candidate in the March 2011 Youth Parliament elections. The national organisation which provides young people aged 14-25 a platform to represent young people across Scotland and an opportunity to influence politicians and formal decision makers are looking for its next group of youth activists.

Anyone aged 14-25 has had the opportunity to stand as a candidate in the elections, and in East Lothian ALL secondary school age can vote in the upcoming elections (East Lothian have negotiated with the SYP for ALL young people to get a vote not just 14+)
