Youth Parliament 2019
This triennial programme gives young people the opportunity to understand and be a part of the Parliamentary process and connect with their communities. It is a significant opportunity for 120 young New Zealanders to gather the views of their peers and bring young peoples’ voice to Parliament.
I would like to introduce Isabella Copinga, the Youth MP for Invercargill. She has been in Parliament for the last 2 days participating in caucus sessions and legislative debates, not only does Isabella represent the youth of Southland but her dynamic youthful outlook will steer our community towards a positive future.
