Waitaki MP Jacqui is on the lookout for a youth MP to get involved in the New Zealand Youth Parliament in 2019.
“This will be the ninth Youth Parliament, with the programme providing an opportunity to hear from young people in regions like the Waitaki on what’s important to them.
“Youth Parliament is a wonderful opportunity for young people from all over the country to come to Wellington and debate topical issues facing New Zealand, in the heart of Parliament.
“And it’s a great chance for a young person from the Waitaki electorate to come and experience the inner workings of Parliament and learn a few new skills.
“I would love to find a young person from this electorate, who is keen to give our region a strong voice in Parliament, and I would enjoy supporting them as part of this programme.
“Nominees must be aged 16-18 years old and will come to Wellington in July next year to experience what it’s like to be a MP for a couple of days. They will participate in Parliament, debate a number of issues in Select Committees and attend caucus.”
