Student representatives from Parliament clubs in 109 schools from all over the country took part in the Youth Parliament held on Friday at the Sibelius-Academy concert hall.
 
According to the parliament, ten ministers were present to answer questions posed by the young people. 
 
The questions dealt with issues such as climate change, penalties for sexual assaults, Finnish security policy, migrant crisis and sanctions against Russia, said a press release.   
 
As in the past the format was based on Question Time, with Speaker Maria Lohela directing the proceedings.
 
This was the tenth time the session was arranged.
 
Kaisa Hämäläinen from Hämeenkoski and Cilla Krigsman from Loviisa represented Anna Tapio School. 
 
Krigsman question was included in the list of questions, but it did not get to be presented in the hour-long session.
 
Krigsman was interested to hear from the ministers why is that attention has been paid to rape only after the influx of immigrant. Questions related to penalty on rape cases were, however, dealt with.
 
The students were also interested in issues related to cuts because the students discuss the same issues with their peers.
