President of the National Youth Council Delroy Williams said the youth are concerned about issues relating to the electoral process in Dominica.
Williams was speaking on the heels of the debate concerning whether national identification cards or voter ID cards for Dominica were the best way forward.
Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit announced this week that he is moving ahead with the implementation of national ID cards despite calls from the Opposition to have voter ID cards for the next general elections.
Williams said the youth will welcome any tool that will ensure a free and fair election.
“I think both are very important pieces of identification that we need. I think the national ID cards are a step in the right direction but the concerns of the Opposition is legitimate with regards to the voter ID cards. The voter ID cards is a very important issue for young persons as we participate fully in the election process,” he said.
He said whichever process is taken it should lead to a more transparent general elections.
