WITH the Legislative Assembly scheduled to officially open this Thursday, a two day advanced induction program for MPs is underway at Davina House.
The objective of the workshop is to familiarize and further develop MPs knowledge and understanding on different legislative matters including the law making processes.
Other issues discussed include the budget process, petitions, motions, information management and communications.
Former Speaker of Parliament, Lord Fakafanua leads the two day event with the kind support of the Legislative Assembly and UNDP through Tonga Governance Strengthening Programme (TGSP).
Today’s session is for non-Cabinet Members and tomorrow is for Cabinet Members at Loumaile Lodge.
A similar induction workshop was held in January this year, following the general election last November.
