On Wednesday 7th December the Saint Lucia National Youth Council convened a General Council Meeting at the Vieux Fort Primary School. The aim of the meeting was to receive updates from affiliate District Youth and Sports Councils, and to decide on the fate of the National Youth Council Executive, which had been inactive in recent times. With a quorum achieved, the General Council moved to dissolve the NYC Executive, and to install an Interim Committee to handle the affairs of the Council for the next three (3) months. Moving forward, the Interim Committee will be tasked with the responsibility of preparing for the 15th General Assembly of the National Youth Council, which will be held on March 4th 2017. Election of a new NYC Executive, which was constitutionally due in October 2016, will now take place during the General Assembly. The Interim Committee will carry out its mandate as set out by the General Council; to follow through with the responsibilities and commitments of the NYC, until the appointment of a new executive.
