Fate of BiH Is In Hands of Youth, Says Lijanović During Coffee Time With…

On October 7, youth will hold the fate of the country in their hands, said presidential candidate Jerko Ivanović Lijanović, from Narodna stranka Radom za boljitak during Coffee Time with youth from various parts of BiH.

Lijanović encouraged youth to take advantage of their right to vote, take up a pen as their only weapon and put it to good use.

The Institute for Youth Development, in order to help youth understand the BiH presidential election process, held a series of youth encounters with presidential candidates.

During this event, youth asked the candidate about measures that can be taken to fight corruption, they wanted to know about the economic plans for the country, and mechanisms that could prevent youth from leaving the country.

In Bosnia and Herzegovina there are 700,000 youth, defined by law as persons between 15 and 30 years of age. They majority of youth are part of the electorate, and the Institute for Youth Development KULT wants to give them a chance to make an informed decision. We believe that youth should and must be included in the programs of political parties in BiH and it’s high time for the top level of government to prioritize youth in their discourse.

On the other hand, this will allow elected officials to tailor their election programs to actual needs of BiH youth who elected them.
