Angus MacDonald MSP is encouraging young people in the Falkirk District to stand in the upcoming Scottish Youth Parliament (SYP) elections. Being part of SYP gives young people the opportunity to represent the views of other young people in their area, and advocate for the issues that matter to them.
Commenting, Angus MacDonald MSP for Falkirk East said:
“It goes without saying that the Scottish Youth Parliament is vital in getting young people engaged with the issues affecting them the most. Young people are the future of Scotland, and to have them standing up for their rights and for what they believe Scotland should be, that can only be positive for the country as a whole.
“I would encourage any young person who is passionate about their future, and the future of their friends and peers, to stand for election to the Scottish Youth Parliament and have a say in how Scotland’s future is shaped.”
Elections to the Scottish Youth Parliament happen every two years, with the next elections taking place in March 2017. The call for candidates is open until the 31st of October 2016. More information at the Scottish Youth Parliament Website. #Stand4SYP
