Jordaine Pemberton was elected a delegate by the National Youth Council in 2020.
His status as a delegate is recognised by the National Youth Council, the Commonwealth Youth Forum and the International Youth Council.
As a delegate of the National Youth Council his responsibilities include representing Antigua and Barbuda at various events and conferences, which includes the Commonwealth Youth Forum in Rwanda.
Jordaine Pemberton has already represented his country and voted on its behalf in the past.
To be clear the Progressive Youth has no issue with the individual who was sent to the Commonwealth Youth Forum.
The issue is that the current delegate Jordaine Pemberton was not also selected even though the event allows for the attendance of two individuals of observer or delegate status.
The Progressive Youth seeks clarification from cabinet on their decision to send only one individual to represent Antigua and Barbuda at the Commonwealth Youth Forum in Rwanda.
The Progressive Youth seeks clarification from cabinet and the minister responsible for youth affairs why the current delegate was not sent to represent his country.
The Progressive Youth seeks clarification from the minister with responsibility for youth affairs if he informed the cabinet of the facts concerning the selection of delegates to represent Antigua and Barbuda at the Commonwealth Youth Forum in Rwanda.
