Press Release – Conference of Speakers and Presiding Officer of the Commonwealth Standing Committee meeting.

THIS WEEK IN THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY

 Hon. Speaker Patrick Pillay to preside over Standing Committee meeting to be held in London from January 12th to 15th, 2017 in regards to the Conference of Speakers and Presiding Officer of the Commonwealth (CSPOC) to be held in Seychelles in 2018.

 Honorable Speaker, Patrick Pillay has left Seychelles this morning to attend the CSPOC Standing Committee meeting to be held in London from January 12th to 15th, 2017; whereby Honorable Speaker Pillay will be taking the chair.

The key issue to be discussed in the meeting is the planning of the next CSPOC to be held in Seychelles in 2018, where once more the Conference will be chaired by the Honorable Speaker, Patrick Pillay; with Seychelles being the current Chairperson of the Association.

Held every two years, the Conference brings together Speakers and Presiding Officers of the Commonwealth, and provides an exclusive forum whereby the delegates can discuss pertinent issues, and share experiences regarding the running of Parliaments.

As is the practice, Speakers are usually accompanied to the meeting by their Clerk or Secretary General; hence the Acting Clerk of the National Assembly Ms. Jutta Alexis will be accompanying Honorable Speaker Patrick Pillay.
