Polls are drawing to a close to elect the young parliamentarians of Camden who will influence the borough’s political present and future.
A Youth MP and two Deputy Youth MPs will be voted in from a shortlist of 14 candidates aged 12 to 17, with the ballot closing on March 27 and the result announced on April 2.
The ambitious candidates have created manifestos and campaign videos around key local issues such as knife crime, climate change and funding cuts.
The winning nominees will help shape local decision-making and also sit nationally in the UK Youth Parliament.
Abdul Hai, Camden Council’s cabinet member for young people and cohesion, said: Our Youth MP and two Deputy Youth MPs are an important voice for young people, raising the profile of issues that matter to the youth of Camden and helping to shape our policies.”
