Electronic voting machines, constitutional and electoral reforms and ways of conducting free and fair elections were discussed in the meeting. Shehbaz appreciated the efforts of Ahmed Bilal Mahboob for political awareness of youths.

He praised the Youth Parliament as a good initiative. He said the youths are the future of Pakistan and are disheartened by the ongoing politics that would weaken democracy in the country.
