UK Parliamentarians Join Parliament Of Grenada For Knowledge-Sharing Programme

PR – The UK Parliament is partnering with the Parliament of Grenada to deliver a post-election seminar for Grenadian parliamentarians after the 2022 General Election.

Following last year’s General Election, the Parliament of Grenada has invited the UK branch of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA UK) to facilitate a post-election seminar. The seminar is for both Members of the House of Representatives and Senators.

The Post-Election Seminar will take place on 7, 8 and 9 March 2023. The programme consists of three full days of presentations, discussions, and interactive workshops to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and experience between the parliaments of Grenada and the UK. Programme topics will include the legislative process and the operation of committee inquiries.

The approach of the seminar is one of collaboration and peer-to-peer learning. The programme content has been designed in consultation between CPA UK and the Parliament of Grenada and session speakers are drawn from both participating parliaments.

The CPA UK delegation consists of three parliamentarians, one clerk and one member of CPA UK staff. CPA UK regularly facilitates knowledge-sharing activities between the UK and other parliaments in the Commonwealth with the aim of supporting parliamentary democracy. In recent years, CPA UK has had significant interaction with the Parliament of Grenada, including a bilateral visit to St George’s in early 2020 and virtual engagement during the pandemic. 

Kerry McCarthy MP, CPA UK Delegation Leader: “I am grateful for the Parliament of Grenada for inviting the CPA UK delegation to participate in this Post-Election Seminar. I personally find it invaluable to have opportunities to learn from parliamentarians in legislatures across the Commonwealth and I look forward to a productive programme.”
