Cornwall’s New Members of the Youth Parliament
On Saturday, I was invited to attend the final stages of the elections for Cornwall’s MYPs. It was good to see so many young people take over the council chamber for the event and give speeches that could give any Cornwall Councillor a run for their money.
During the event, the Candidates from the three MYP areas, West, Mid and East Cornwall, were given the chance to say why they should be elected. It was extremely impressive to hear very well put together points, with humour and perfect delivery. I would expect to see one or more of these Candidates again, not just MYP, but elected to Cornwall Council.
As with any elections, there are winners and losers. I hope those unlucky not to be selected this time continue to raise youth issues and help support the MYPs.
Here is a selection of photos from the event
