The Isle of Wight’s Youth MP, Joe Davies, has announced his resignation from the United Kingdom Youth Parliament.
Joe has made his announcement today (Tuesday) through a Youtube video, in which he explains his reasoning for standing down as the representative of young people across the Isle of Wight.
Following his 17 month stint as the Youth MP, Joe has said:
“I’ve honestly had the time of my life. Whilst I wish I could keep doing this forever, I think it does my constituents a disservice to continue as their representative when my main focus will be on my studies at university beginning in two weeks time.
“I will always look back on my time as the MYP with pride, and I’ll always be looking for ways to support those who come after me, and improve the lot of the young people of our beautiful island.
“Thank you to everybody who has supported me on this incredible journey. Thank you, Isle of Wight. It’s been a blast”.
