International Day of Parliamentarism History
The International Day of Parliamentarism is celebrated globally to recognize the role of parliaments in the development of democracy, peace, and human rights. It is also an opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of parliamentary work in promoting good governance and sustainable development.
In New Zealand, the International Day of Parliamentarism is celebrated by the New Zealand Parliament. The event is marked by a special session in which parliamentarians reflect on the role of parliament in the country and discuss ways to enhance its effectiveness. The day acknowledges the contribution of parliamentarians in promoting democracy, good governance, and development, and reinforces the importance of parliamentary work in achieving these goals.
The New Zealand Parliament has a long and rich history. It was established in 1854, making it one of the oldest parliaments in the world. The parliamentary system is based on the Westminster model, which has served as an inspiration to many other countries around the world. Over the years, the New Zealand Parliament has played a vital role in shaping the country's political, economic, and social landscape. Today, it continues to be a beacon of democracy and good governance, and the celebration of the International Day of Parliamentarism is an affirmation of this. International Day of Parliamentarism is observed annually on June 30th.
