Wyatt encourages youth to engage with the political process

  Wyatt Roy, Federal Member for Longman last night hosted the launch of a local youth branch of the LNP with a barbeque on the roof of State Parliament with guests including Leader of the LNP John Paul Langbroek and Deputy Leader of the LNP Lawrence Springborg.

Wyatt said that it is his personal philosophy is that all young people should engage with government at some level and be aware of the privileges that Australians enjoy.

Mr Roy said that being involved in the Young LNP was one way to do this.

“I encourage all young people to get involved in contributing to our country’s governance, regardless of how they become involved, whether it is through political parties, independent policy think-tanks or by volunteering,” he said.

State LNP Members including Jarrod Bleijie, Tim Nicholls and Fiona Simpson, as well as State Candidate for Pumicestone Lisa France and State Candidate for Morayfield Darren Grimwade also attended.

“I was pleased to host the launch of the Longman Young LNP, and am happy to have the opportunity to give young people of Longman a direct voice in the political process.

“Through a party such as the young LNP individuals can make policy suggestions and ideas and well as local community initiatives which can then develop into party policy.

“As the youngest person elected to an Australian Parliament I strongly believe in younger Australians taking their rightful part in the political process,” said Mr Roy.
