World Parliament Day 2021

30 Jun 2021 (3 months ago)

World Parliament Day was established in 2018 through a United Nations General Assembly Resolution.

The theme this year is focused on youth participation.

World Parliament Day is celebrated every year on 30 June and it recognises the day the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) was founded in 1889. The IPU empowers parliaments and parliamentarians to promote peace, democracy and sustainable development.

Parliaments all over the world will be recognising this day, and taking stock of what these institutions have done to foster good governance and protect the democratic systems that govern countries.

In this infographic, we take you through what your MP's have said about the legislature. These issues range from electoral reform, exercising effective oversight on the executive and encouraging the public to take ownership of Parliament.
