The youth of the borough have had their say and the Enfield Youth Parliament has been decided
The votes have been counted and the third Enfield Youth Parliament is ready and raring to go.
From 27 young candidates to just 16, the youth of Enfield have made their choices for the 2013-2015 youth parliament.
Ten days of voting amounted to 9,600 votes being cast, 64 per cent of those eligible to vote from participating schools.
Cabinet member for Leisure, Sport, Culture and Young people, Councillor Bambos Charalambous said: “I am proud to see so many young people embrace the challenges of the borough we live in and do so with passion to make a difference to their lives.
“This process is a very important one. It teaches you about responsibility, respect and how to articulate yourself when important decisions have to be made about service delivery to young people.”
Returning officer for the parliament Councillor Ayfer Orhan cabinet member for children and young people said: “I believe strongly in Enfield’s Young People and recognise the importance of having a formal youth parliament that allows the views of Enfield’s youth to be heard.
“Enfield Council and its partners need to continue to listen to our young residents as they are the future of Enfield. With this in mind I am pleased to announce the new Enfield Youth Parliament for 2013.”
