SYP Election Results Announced

Following weeks of campaigning by our 4 amazing candidates, we are delighted to announce that your Who Cares? Scotland Members of the Scottish Youth Parliament for 2022-2024 are Charles Fernando and Oisín King!  

After casting your votes in the November election, our Who Cares? Scotland members aged 12-25, have decided that you would like Charles and Oisín to represent you in the Scottish Youth Parliament.  

Charles and Oisín will stand as MSYPs from March 2022 until 2024, and throughout this time they will be looking to hear about the issues most important to you and discuss changes you’d like to see happen in Scotland. As your representatives, it is their role to listen to you and amplify the voices of the Care Experienced community within this vital youth forum. 

We would like to say a huge thank you to Cheyann Kelly and Chris Marshall for the excellent campaigns they also led in the election process, we wish you all the best in your next steps – thank you for your passion and dedication! 

Finally, we extend an especially big thank you to you, our members, for casting your votes and democratically electing our MSYPs! 

This is what Oisín and Charles had to say after the votes were counted.
