Tonight the Oldham Youth Council held their annual election to elect their representatives to the UK Youth Parliament. Due to last year’s deputies not being to continue the transition to members of youth parliament this meant electing two members of youth parliament (MYP) and two deputy members of youth parliament (DMYP).
The first vote produced two clear front runners and congratulations go to Mariam Waseem and Daisy who will Oldham’s MYPs for the coming year.
The second vote for DMYPs ended with a three way tie between the three candidates running. After a vote of the Youth Council it was decided that for 2013 Oldham would have three DMYPs. Congratulations to Dylan McAughey, Saskia Edwards and Jessica Entwistle who take up the DMYP role.
