(16 December 2011 public discussion in Strumica)
The Coalition of youth organizations SEGA in cooperation with the Youth Council of Strumica organized public discussion “Law for Youth- to be returned in parliament procedure!”. The participants from Strumica consider that the mandate for the members of the Council of Youth and the National Council of Youth should be two instead of four years and they proposed the members of these two bodies to be elected through submitting application form with enclosed CV with previous working experience.
Such proposals were accepted by the youth organizations that participated in the public discussion organized by the Coalition SEGA, which aimed to gather young people’s opinion about Law for Youth. The Draft Law for Youth was withdrawn from the parliament procedure by the Government of the Republic of Macedonia in October, after the reaction of civic organizations which claimed that this law is not transparent and is not protecting the interests of youth in Macedonia.
