Participation urged

Youngsters with an interest in parliamentary practice and procedure are being particularly urged to attend a seminar which starts in the chamber of the Legislative Assembly at 9.30am today.

The Cayman Islands branch of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association will be hosting the post election seminar on parliamentary practice and procedure until 5 August.

MLAs will be rubbing shoulders with visiting parliamentarians from the region and the UK who are here to present the topics.

Those topics include the evolution of parliamentary democracy, the role of Members of Parliament and the relationship between the three branches of government – executive, legislative and judicial.
