Youth In Parliament

Just want to clear some clouds over the subject fo Youth in Parliament by Katya Fono.

Youth in Parliament is in fact a "mock parliament" organised for youths. It's not trying to put youths in parliament as per "reserved seats for women" notion.

Youth in Parliament is a programme organised by the Ministry of Women, Youth and Children Affairs along with the Parliament Office as part of educating young people about Parliament processes.

So Katya Fono, understand that Youth in Parliament in this context is a different notion from what you tend to mean.
