HINKLER MP KEITH PITT
THERE is always a portion of the community which is very passionate about politics and this extends to young adults. Often it is because of something that has directly affected them.
I believe it is important for young adults to have an understanding of the three different levels of government and the areas of responsibility of each. Every person aged 18 and over has a democratic right, and a responsibility, to take part in the parliamentary process through elections.
People are given an opportunity to have their say and I believe they should exercise that right. One of the reforms impacting 18–25year-olds includes a package of higher education reforms passed through the House of Representatives last month which will give students more choice, help boost student outcomes, and better value for taxpayers.
