The Glasgow Youth Council Presents: Local Election Hustings
Thu 27 April 2017, 15:00 – 17:00 BST
The Glasgow Youth Council is a youth democracy organisation dedicated to improving the lives of Young People living, working, studying and volunteering in Glasgow. We believe a key part of this is getting young people more involved in politics and making sure their voices are heard, so we have organised this hustings event for the local elections in May where you will be able to quiz the five main political parties on any issues you want to know about.
Taking place in the Wolfson Centre (a five minute walk from Glasgow Central Station), the event will be a fantastic opportunity to come and listen to each party's reasons about why they think you should vote for them, and is not to be missed.
Questions are encouraged, so don't be shy about making your voice heard at the hustings!
**PLEASE NOTE that the Glasgow Youth Council have contacted Glasgow's Director of Education, Maureen McKenna, who has confirmed that anyone who wants to leave school early to attend the Hustings can do so. Please contact the GYC and we will write you a letter allowing you to be excused from class**
The Confirmed Panel is:
