NOMINATIONS to the Scottish Youth Parliament have now opened.

Borderers aged between 14 and 25 can stand for the region’s three members, with candidates expected to be passionate about democracy.

Scottish Borders Council leader David Parker said: “With the up-and-coming Scottish Referendum platform that will, for the first time, allow 16 and 17-year-olds to vote, it is extremely important that all young people take part in the democratic process.”
