U.S. Ambassador and Chairman of the Parliament Congratulate Parliamentary Interns
TBILISI – U.S. Ambassador to Georgia John R. Bass and Speaker of Parliament David Bakradze will host a graduation ceremony for the 2011-2012 class of Parliament interns on June 29, at 3:00 p.m. in the Shota Rustaveli Hall in the building of the former Parliament. Now in its sixth year, the Parliamentary Internship Program is supported by the U.S. Government through USAID’s Parliamentary Strengthening Project, implemented by NDI.
This one-year intensive internship program provided eleven graduates an opportunity to gain practical experience in Georgia’s policy and legislative process and increase their knowledge about the parliamentary system. Interns participated in committee activities as researchers, prepared reports for parliamentarians on important issues, and helped parliamentarians respond to citizens’ questions in a timely manner. Interns also worked with committees, factions and departments, and received regular training on the parliamentary process, legislative and political research, public speaking skills, negotiation, debate and communications.
Members of Parliament, parliamentary staff, media and other guests are invited to attend the graduation ceremony.
