Friday’s (November 25, 2022) Youth Parliament Sitting created history as it marked the first time that the St. Kitts National Youth Parliament Association (SKNYPA) and the National Youth Parliament Association of Antigua and Barbuda (NYPAAB) held a mock National Assembly.
The Joint Youth Parliament Sitting was held in commemoration of St. Kitts’ Youth Month. The members debated and successfully passed the Age of Minority (Amendment) Bill 2022. Two resolutions were also debated and passed. The first was a Resolution by the Joint Youth Assembly of St. Christopher and Nevis and Antigua and Barbuda to Commission a Health Investigatory Select Committee, and the second was a Resolution by the Joint Youth Assembly of St. Christopher and Nevis and Antigua and Barbuda to Promote Integrity and Efficiency within the Civil Service.
