It is an opportunity for young people from the Commonwealth to experience aspects of parliamentary democracy and provides a platform for them to establish links with like-minded peers. they will also experience a 'real-life' working parliament or legislature. Formal parliamentary practice adapted from several Commonwealth countries will be followed and the proceedings will be observed under the watchful eyes of experienced parliamentary officials.

The CPA Delhi Branch of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association is delighted to host the tenth annual Commonwealth Youth Parliament.

Participants are nominated by their individual CPA Branches in each Commonwealth Parliament (national or subnational) and so youth participants are asked to contact their local CPA Branch for details of how to apply.
