Matthew Jackson representing Northcote at Youth Parliament
Matthew Jackson (13NA) has been selected to represent the Hon. Dr Jonathan Coleman MP for Northcote, at the 2013 Youth Parliament.
The Youth Parliament will see 121 Youth MPs in Wellington at Parliament for two days on 16 and 17 July to experience NZ democracy first hand. During Youth Parliament, Youth MPs experience all the different parts of Parliament, participate in the different parts of legislative debate, ask questions of Ministers during question time, review legislation in select committees and come together in caucus sessions.
Matthew spoke at a special breakfast held recently for Youth Representatives. His speech was received very well by all in attendance, including the Prime Minister.
