THE Solomon Islands National Parliamentary Strengthening Project has staged series consultations with stakeholders.
The consultations held last week focused on educating key stakeholders including public servants and civil society groups on the significant functions of the respective committees in parliament.
A statement from the Solomon Islands Parliamentary Strengthening Project Manager Celsus Talifilu said such consultation is vital for stakeholders and the public to clearly understand the role various parliamentary committees play in identifying different issues of concern to the people of this country.
He explained that committees in parliament are established to investigate different issues regarding public expenditure, transports and others which are then reported and put forth for parliament debate.
He added that stakeholders must be educated on these to clearly understand how they can integrate in such processes.
Mr Talifilu said sofar Solomon Islands National Parliament has 8 standing Committees and 2 special Select Committees.
The consultations are expected to reach out to an expected 80 different stakeholders.
