Young Voters Will Decide Timor-Leste's Parliamentary Election
A total of 21 political parties are registered to contest the Timor-Leste parliamentary election on July 22. In the race for political office, many observers are keeping an eye on four political parties – the Revolutionary Front for an Independent East Timor (Fretilin), National Congress for Timorese Reconstruction (CNRT), Democratic Party (PD), and People’s Liberation Party (PLP).
