FRANCISTOWN: Botswana Congress Party Youth League (BCPYL) vice president, June June, has said they are going to establish a national youth assembly (NYA) once voted into power.

He was addressing masses of youth and party delegates during the BCPYL manifesto launch over the weekend. In his address, June said they are going to establish a NYA within the first two years of government. He further indicated that the national assembly will deal with issues of the youth across the country. At the moment there is no or less youth representation in Parliament, therefore the NYA will enable the participation of youth in the decision-making process, he added. June also elaborated that the NYA will ensure that issues affecting the youth will be discussed better.

According to the BCPYL manifesto, NYA will be fully and independently resourced by government and mandated to review all government bills before presentation to Parliament. He also spoke about the introduction of propositional representatives after the elections, unlike the current state where the winner of the elections will take it all. June stated that BCP as indicated in the party manifesto strives to create over 300,000 jobs and a job in every household in five years of government. "We know that there are 47,000 graduates who are currently unemployed.
