On Wednesday, July 13th 2022 Cardiff Youth Council (CYC) elections for Chair and Vice-Chair took place with 3 candidates putting themselves forward for election. All candidates delivered speeches to say why they wanted to, and should be, elected as Chair or Vice-Chair. They also took questions from members.
This year the following people stood for the positions of Chair & Vice-Chair of CYC:
- Mikaeel Moulani
- Zack Hellard
- Arthur Templeman-Lilley
CYC and the the Child Friendly Cardiff (CFC) team thanks all candidates for putting themselves forward in such a courageous way, for delivering some inspiring speeches and answering all questions that CYC put forward.
Mikaeel and Zack were duly elected as Chair and Vice-Chair of CYC in the closest run election that we have seen, and has also given us our youngest ever Chair (Mikaeel, 11 years old), so a huge congratulations to all.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Mia John and Saffron Vanderkolk-Pellow for their time as Chair and Vice-Chair. We wish them the very best in their future endeavours, please don’t be strangers and keep in touch.
