Speaking at the opening of the meeting of the seventh parliamentary commission with Youth Platforms, the MP (pictured at centre) considered it an important occasion for lawmakers to be aware of the anxieties of young people.

On the occasion, the MP highlighted several issues discussed in the meeting such as education, vocational training, employment, health, housing and public services.

On his turn, the member of the National Youth Council (CNJ) António Tingão, defended the urgent approval of the legislative package for local elections.

To António Tingão, the MPs must take into account the recommendations and proposals embodied in the consulting process report made with several sections of the society.

The meeting with Youth Platforms was instituted by the 7th Commission of the National Assembly five years ago. It aims at bolstering the capacity of  youth leaders on the main politico-juridical instruments.
