Parliamentary Awareness Programme for Civil Society
The Office of the Legislative Assembly will host its 2nd Parliamentary Civil Society Programme, on the same day Parliament meets for its final sitting 2017.

More importantly, the programme seeks to develop relations with the media so as to be able to report Parliamentary proceedings to the public effectively.
