The Speaker of 11th Parliament Anita Annet Among has advised all Members of Parliament to ensure that they unite and work together regardless of political affiliation as way of taking Uganda forward.
She made the revelation on Wednesday June 15 at the opening of the first training seminar for the Members of the 11th Parliament happening at Imperial Royale Hotel in Kampala.
“As legislators I implore you to work together with unity and purpose of the 11th Parliament irrespective of your political parties, shades of opinion, gender, religion and ethnic groups. We should be a united Parliament that is aimed at ensuring that we deliver on what is expected of us,” Speaker Among said.
Similarly, she asked all MPs to ensure that they deliver on their mandate in their respective constituencies reasoning that this is extremely vital and one of the cardinal demands expected of the MPs upon election.
“Each of us has a constituency, much as I ¬¬am proud of your performance in the House, you have to be performing in the constituency because I want you to come back to Parliament for another term,” the speaker advised the MPs at the training.
She also advised the MPs to always seek guidance and support each they find difficulty in their areas of work.
The 3-day training is part of the interventions devised by the Parliamentary Commission towards continuous improvement in the quality of output and the overall efficiency and effectiveness of the legislature as an institution and Members of Parliament as individuals
It is also aimed at continuous capacity building for Members of Parliament and recognizing the fact that quality is an outcome of consistent application of high standards in their work.
