A delegation of Members of Parliament from Fiji is in Wellington this week to study how the New Zealand Parliament operates.

The delegation is led by the Parliament of Fiji Deputy Speaker, Ruveni Nadalo, and includes the Whips from both the Government and the Opposition parties.

The visit is facilitated by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). Since January 2014, UNDP has been working to provide support to the Parliament of Fiji through a project funded by the European Union and the Governments of New Zealand, Australia and Japan.

During the three-day visit that started yesterday, the delegation will observe proceedings in the Chamber, study the way in which committees operate, discuss the mechanisms used by the Parliament’s Business Committee to arrange the Parliament’s work and exchange experiences with their New Zealand counterparts as to the roles and functions of the whips in Parliament.

The Fijian Parliament secretary-General, Viniana Namosimalua, is also part of the team.

She said: “Following the recent election, the Parliament of Fiji is now a central institution in the governance structures of Fiji. It is important that the Parliament now functions effectively and efficiently.  I am delighted that we will have an opportunity to view proceedings in the New Zealand Parliament and exchange experiences with our counterparts.”
