Pasifika encouraged to get interested in NZ politics

From , 4:02 pm on 15 March 2017

A New Zealand group is working on giving young Pasifika a voice and getting them engaged in politics.

The Pacific Youth Leadership and Transformation Council is inviting people to apply to take part in April's Pacific Youth Parliament.

They'll be trained up to act as MPs and lobbyists over three days.

The group's chair Josiah Tualamali'i told Koro Vaka'uta the aim is to give Pasifika insight into how decisions are made.
