New Members of the Scottish Youth Parliament

Monday 19th June 2017

Following the elections which have taken place over the last seven days, The Boys' Brigade  in Scotland is pleased to welcome its two new MSYPs.  David Kong from 65th Edinburgh and John Paterson from 3rd Kilsyth have been elected to represent BB young people for the next two years.  Both will attend the first sitting of the new Parliament this weekend in West Dunbartonshire.

Director for Scotland for The Boys' Brigade, John Sharp, said:

Can I take this opportunity to congratulate all the candidates for putting themselves forward for the role.  It takes a great deal of courage to put yourself forward, express your views and stand for election.

I would like to say a particular well done to David and John on being elected our very first MYSPs.  I look forward to working with them both in ensuring BB young people's views are represented in the parliament and in our future plans for The Boys' Brigade in Scotland.

A total of 27 sections participated in the election.
