Four youth parliamentarians will be representing the Nevis Branch of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) at the 15th Regional Youth Parliament Debate in Trinidad and Tobago on July 17th.

As per the announcement by Myra Williams Secretary of the Nevis Branch of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association, the young parliamentarians are Patrice Nisbett II and Tequanne Morton of the Charlestown Secondary School, Destiny Lowe of the Gingerland Secondary School and Jayden Dore of the Nevis International Secondary School.

The young students were chosen from a field of 10 by a panel of two judges at their final Parliamentary debate which was held on June 6 at the Nevis Island Assembly Chambers, Hamilton House. They presented on the topic: ‘Securing our borders to mitigate the effects of crime whilst striving to meet our humanitarian obligations.’

The debate forms part of the 44th CPA Regional Conference of the Caribbean, the Americas and the Atlantic Region which will be held from July 12-19.

Students participating in youth parliament have the opportunity to network and discuss ideas with their peers locally and regionally. The experience should provide students with a better understanding of how parliament works.

Last year, Nevis was represented by Rol-J Willaims of Nevis Sixth Form College, Lauren Lawrence and Celestial Hanley from the Charlestown Secondary School and Charlyn Myers from the Gingerland Secondary School.

Nevis has been participating in the youth parliamentary conference since its inception in 2000, when it was hosted in the Bahamas.
