Newly elected Members of the Parliament (MPs) of Georgia are attending a new induction programme to get ready for the implementation of their constitutional mandate. The third phase of the programme on January 23 – February 1 includes intensive two-day training for 80 MPs from parliamentary majority and minority.

The training for MPs is part of a four-phase induction programme which informs them about their legislative, oversight and representative functions, broader roles and constitutional responsibilities. The concept of the induction programme is based on best international practice in this area, including experience of the UK Parliament. 

Throughout the training sessions, MPs receive practical guidance on parliamentary work and on specific topics, such as human rights, gender equality, constituency outreach and media relations. The MPs have an opportunity to meet Parliament staff, representatives of Public Defender and State Audit Office, civil society organizations and experts in specific areas.

The training has been tailor made for the Georgian MPs as part of wider support to parliamentary democracy in Georgia co-funded by the European Union (EU) and Parliament of Georgia, and implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in cooperation with the Westminster Foundation for Democracy (WFD).
