Youth engagement


Chuka met with local young people from across Lambeth to discuss political engagement, including lowering the voting age, the the European Referendum, and Brexit. 

Chuka who strongly supports giving 16 and 17-year-olds the vote, spoke about how he believes reducing the voting age would lead to further political participation from young people. This was met with support and they agreed that the EU referendum had allowed a discussion for the role of young people post Brexit.
