NEW YORK: A delegation of the UAE's Parliamentary Division has participated in a panel discussion on "Parliamentary oversight: Challenges and Opportunities", which was held yesterday in the Permanent Headquarters of the United Nations in New York, on the side-lines of the Fourth World Conference of Speakers of Parliament.

The panel discussion reviewed the experiences of some of the parliaments and their oversight role, which included the United Kingdom, Belgium, Kenya, Barbados, Chile and Indonesia.

The delegation of the UAE's Parliamentary Division included Rashid Mohammed Al Shariqi, a Member of the Federal National Council and Representative of the Arab Group of the Executive Committee of the IPU, and Mona Jum'a Al Bahra, a Member of the Federal National Council.

During the session, the delegation of the UAE's Parliamentary Division presented proposals on the need to develop the oversight role of parliaments through spreading awareness of parliamentary culture.

The summit of Speakers of Parliament from across the world is a unique forum for dialogue and cooperation between parliaments at the highest level. The overall theme of the conference focuses on peace, democracy, and development seen through the parliamentary lens.

The conference, convened by the Inter-Parliamentary Union, IPU, in cooperation with the United Nations, is part of a series of high-level meetings leading up to the UN Summit later this month, at which the new Sustainable Development Goals, SDGs, will be launched. – Emirates News Agency, WAM - http://www.wam.ae/en/news/emirates/1395284931010.html
