Limited Capacity seats available

System Objective - e-Parliament
Nowadays there is an increased tendency of using the Information and communication technologies (ICT) as essential tools in supporting the work of legislative bodies throughout the world. ICT has become sophisticated and flexible enough to assist the parliaments in their most important responsibilities: making laws and communicating with the citizens. The potential for the IT to significantly enhance the way that the Parliaments conduct their processes and operations is now more evident than ever before.
The Parliaments, as the legislative body in a young democratic country must be able to harness ICT in order to be more representative, transparent, accessible, accountable and effective.
The e-Parliament is considered as a continually evolving concept that is embedded in the institutional approach to modern technologies in the complex parliamentary environment. In order to empower the legislature in the Parliaments through ICT, this project makes not only assessment of the IT infrastructure, but also of the legislative and administrative rules and procedures in the Assembly. The objective is not just to employ new technologies, but also to integrate those technologies in the existing rules and procedures.

Goals and objectives
At the moment there is an increased tendency of using the Information and communication technologies (ICT) as essential tools in supporting the work of legislative bodies throughout the world. ICT has become sophisticated and flexible enough to assist the parliaments in their most important responsibilities making laws and communicating with the citizens.
The challenge for Parliaments are to continually embrace the opportunities that the information technology provides and ensure that citizen's expectations are met, while at the same time ensuring program and cost effectiveness.
There are many reasons why parliaments should consider harnessing ICT in their everyday operations:
- to be more representative,
- to be more transparent,
- to be more accessible,
- to be more accountable
- to be more effective in their many functions.
