Members of parliament are being trained on how to use a new digital multi media conference system in the National Assembly chamber, part of efforts to move towards a long held goal of becoming a paperless institution. The new system, replete with a touchscreen functionality, gives lawmakers access to numerous digital parliamentary documents such as the agenda, bills, the constitution and standing rules and orders among many others, while Speaker of the National Assembly, Prof. Peter Katjavivi, speaking at the opening of the training, explained that the new development will make the work of parliament much more convenient and efficient. “Voting will be more convenient as votes will be tallied automatically instead of counting manually. It will also help with the digital attendance”, Katjavivi said, no doubt also happy that the system will enable him to properly control debate in the house by deciding who should speak through a control unit.
