Unfortunately, the youth of today have been given such a bad name when it is only a minority of people who are creating social disruption. Most youthful people are motivated and long to do well in everything they do, which means they could be a very important aspect in politics.
Young people have different perspectives and a host of different ideas. By allowing them to voice their opinion we could be opening and moving the political world forward. This is not only good for society, but necessary for society. If the young did not engage with politics, even if it is through pressure groups, there would be many issues with our political establishments in trying to keep policy fair and sustainable for future generations. For example, equal rights for women required many young women to engage with the issue at hand. Why? Because they had strong feelings for the issue at hand, and that is something that countries should work to increase – interest and opinion on political matters.
In our last week article we mentioned about giving opportunity to women to take part in the 1 November, 2016 by elections. The same is for the youth. In our parliament there are few youthful Members of Parliament which means that the youth are not taking an active role in politics. This is the chance for the youth to take leadership positions.
We strongly believe that not enough is done for the young of today to get involved with politics and, as a large portion of our society, they should be allowed more access to politics to shape the world they live in.
The youth need to be given a chance to take active part in politics. We would be happy to see youths and women being given a chance to take part in the 1 November, 2016 by-elections.
