Media Release: MP Scott Simpson

Hauraki Plains College student Anna Tukuitoga will represent the Coromandel electorate at Youth Parliament 2022, says MP Scott Simpson.

‘Anna is a terrific candidate who is really passionate about the issues facing youth in our communities.’

‘She has experience advocating on behalf of her peers through her role as New Zealand Country Music Association Youth Ambassador.’

‘Anna is particularly interested in drawing attention to and improving youth mental wellbeing.’

The Youth Parliament programme provides an opportunity to hear from young people around the country on what is important to them, and for Youth MPs to actively work on topics and issues they are passionate about.

Anna’s tenure as Coromandel Youth MP covers the period 1 March – 31 August 2022 and is highlighted by a two-day event at Parliament in Wellington on 19 and 20 July 2022.

‘Youth Parliament is an incredible opportunity and I know Anna will make the most of her time representing the Coromandel.’
