Recent activities:

  • In January 2023, senior Members and officials of the National Assembly of Seychelles, along with officials from the Government of Seychelles, benefitted from a workshop delivered by the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) Headquarters, which provided an in-depth opportunity for the National Assembly to consider the financial, administrative and legal ramifications of establishing a National Assembly Service and National Assembly Commission; with the ultimate aim of increasing and strengthening the independence of the National Assembly from the Executive. The workshop was funded under the auspices of the CPA Small Branches Regional Initiative Fund (RIF). Click here to find out more.
