World Parliament Day 2023
Date: 30 June 2023
World Parliament Day, or the UN International Day of Parliamentarism, is celebrated every year on 30 June.
The United Nations General Assembly, in its resolution A/RES/72/278, recognised the role of Parliaments in national plans and strategies and in ensuring greater transparency and accountability at national and global levels. It is also the date, in 1889, on which the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) — the global organisation of parliaments — was established.
This Day celebrates Parliaments and the ways in which parliamentary systems of government improve the day-to-day lives of people the world over. It is also an opportunity for Parliaments to take stock, identify challenges, and ways to address them effectively.
