Applications for youth parliament on

by Lilibeth A. French

ILOILO CITY, Jan. 30 (PIA6) -- The National Youth Commission is now accepting applications from youth in this region who would like to participate in the 9th National Youth Parliament slated on the 1st week of May.

The event is expected to gather an estimated two hundred youth leaders representing different sectors from the regions in the country.

Qualified to participate in the NYP are Filipino citizens, aged 15 - 30 years old as of February 29, 2012; residing at the place of representation for at least six (6) months at the time of submission; must be a member of an organization of good moral character; and can contribute to the objectives of the 9th National Youth Parliament.

“Revolutionizing Youth Development,” is the theme of this year’s parliament that aims to formulate policy recommendations to address youth issues in the country which are then lobbied to government leaders to be considered as proposed bills and administrative policies.

NYC Commissioner Gio Tingson, who heads this year’s NYP National Organizing Committee, said in a NYC press report that this gathering is the perfect platform for all Filipino youth to get proactive.

“Ito na ang pagkakataon n’yo na makibahagi sa isa sa pinaka-importanteng proyektong pangkabataan ng pamahalaan kung saan ang boses ng natin ay maririnig sa paggawa ng mga policy recommendations para maging batas o polisiya. (This is your chance to take part in one o the most important government projects for the youth in which we could participate in crafting policy recommendation.) If you want change in the government – in our society – this is a great place to start,” said Tingson.

According to the NYC, previous NYP delegates are no longer qualified to participate.

Other details and requirements are found on the NYP 9 application form which can be downloaded at the NYC website at and the NYC Facebook account. For more information, please e-mail or call (02) 416-2833, 416-3415, 413-5503 or 416-3570.

Youth in Western Visayas may also contact the NYC Visayas Area Office at 032-268-9531 or at email about the event. (JSC/LAF-PIA6 Iloilo)
