A programme to raise awareness about Parliamentary procedures and practices was held at Hungama Vijayaba College, under the patronage of the Deputy Speaker Ajith Rajapakse, on Monday (9).

The main objective of the programme was to develop the knowledge of the school students about Parliamentary procedures and practices and the Assistant Secretary General of Parliament Tikiri K. Jayathilaka and Director Legislative Services and Director Communications (Acting) H.E. Janakantha Silva contributed as resource persons.

Delivering a speech on the role of a Deputy Speaker of the Parliament, Deputy Speaker Rajapakse stated that Parliament plays a big role in securing democracy, but the media does not properly communicate it to the citizens. Because of this, the attitude of the citizens towards the Parliament is not appropriate currently.

Therefore, he pointed out the significance of conveying the role of Parliament to the people through the media.

The Assistant Secretary General of Parliament delivered his speech on the topic of ‘Our Parliament and the Contribution of the Future Citizen’, while the Director (Legislative Services) and Director Communications (Acting) delivered his speech on ‘Duties of Parliament and the Legislative Process’.

This special awareness programme is another phase in a series of awareness programmes carried out by the Department of Communication of the Parliament of Sri Lanka over the past few years.
