Sami Parliament

Younger Samis Registering for Elections

Published onsdag 28 januari 2009 kl 12.02

There is more reported interest among young Samis or Lapps of the far north of Sweden to vote in the Sami parliamentary elections.

Figures show that there has been a 47% increase in the number of Samis under the age of 30 registering for the May 17 elections.

Sami youth leaders say this is a result of active campaining at Sami festivals and gatherings to get younger people interested in politics.

The Sami parliament has long been disregarded by some critics as a week institution that can only give recommendations on tough political and economic questions and is limited to cultural and social issues.

Only about 10% of the estimated 20,000 Samis here are still engaged in traditional reindeer raising.
