UrBC, Yekaterinburg, December 18, 2015. Two workers from Ural Vagon Zavod Corporation’s head plant – repair mechanic Oleg Belousov and engineer Andrei Ryabov – are going to serve a two-year term as Sverdlovsk Region Youth Parliament deputies.

The company press service reports forty-eight delegates representing ten different parties and associations ran for the office in Nizhniy Tagil/Gornouralsk. Ural Vagon Zavod’s Nizhniy Tagil youth group got most of the votes, which entitled it to two seats in the parliament out of twenty-five. The voters were Sverdlovsk Region residents in the 14-30 age group; voting booths were set up at schools and on the premises of companies with active youth organizations. Ural Vagon Zavod located its voting booths at the company Personnel Training Center.

The Youth Parliament is part of Sverdlovsk Region Legislative Assembly whose task is to shape and implement the government’s youth policy. The main goal is to improve the younger generation’s living standards. The parliament has the right to draft and adopt youth policy guidelines for Sverdlovsk Region legislative and executive authorities, city councils, and NGOs.
