Representation and participation of young people in local elections of 2019″ was the initiative held last year by National Youth Congress in cooperation with German Foundation Konrad Adenaur Stiftung.

The program aimed to study and analyze the situation of youth representation in political parties and local government before the local elections. The program consisted in monitoring, data analyzing, presenting findings, and discussing the challenges and problems that may encounter and presenting possible solutions.

The questionnaire created for this initiative, helped us understand the youth’s approach before the local elections, how much they know the Municipality, the competencies and the voting process, how represented and willing are to participate in the elections and do they think that there should be one a quota set for young people on the candidate lists ?
