MPs Orlic and Nikolic Talk to Representatives of NDI Regional Political Party Programme for Neighbouring Countries

Representatives of the Regional Political Party Programme for neighbouring countries of the National Democratic Institute (NDI) visited the National Assembly on Saturday, 28 November, and met with MPs Dr Vladimir Orlic and Nenad Nikolic.


Orlic briefed the guests on the structure and mode of operation of the parliament, its committees and informal parliamentary groups. He stressed that the parliament’s work is public and transparent in its entirety, evidenced in the fact that the National Assembly’s webpage offers live streaming of all parliamentary activities, not only plenary sessions, viz. committee sittings, forums, panels and public hearings.

“Transparency is extremely important. It helps the parliament reach out to the citizens and we consider communication with the public imperative”, said Orlic.

He stressed that good communication is a necessity on all levels, mentioning that the National Assembly has a great many parliamentary friendship groups which promote cooperation and communication with parliamentarians around the world.

MP Nenad Nikolic explained the work he and his fellow MPs do through a series of examples. He spoke of their role in drafting laws and the entire complex and comprehensive legislative process preceding the inclusion of a bill into the agenda of a National Assembly session.

The questions of the representatives of the Regional Programme for political parties from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania, Macedonia and Montenegro mostly focused on the functioning of the National Assembly’s committees, informal parliamentary groups and caucuses.

In the course of their visit, the representatives of the Regional Political Party Programme for neighbouring countries of the National Democratic Institute were given a tour of the National Assembly edifice.
