Kabataan Partylist Representative, Rep. Raymond "Mong" Palatino filed House Resolution 2370 urging the House Committee on Youth & Sports Development to review the processes of selection and the implementation of the National Youth Parliament - the national convention of different youth leaders in the Philippines every two (2) years.
Palatino wants to review the process of selecting the delegates to the Parliament, which according to him is very important because this will reflect concrete legislative & policy recommendations which will be given to the government.
According to Palatino, there should be a democratic and transparent process of selecting delegates and that this along with the general implementation of the program has not been dutifully fulfilled by the National Youth Commission - the secretariat of the National Youth Parliament.
