The Speaker of Parliament, Abass Bundu has informed MPs that the institution will be benefiting from a transformation of paperless correspondence to electronic in the near future.
Speaker Bundu said the move to e-Parliament is “inevitable” and in tandem with international best practice.
This will mean MPs could access their order papers and other correspondence electronically rather than the usual form paper issuing.
He said the modern form will assist the House to be at par with other international parliamentary engagements.
The Speaker said although the full actualisation will take some time due to resource challenges, plans institute the new system will begin in due course.
Meanwhile, Leader of the Majority and Government Business, Sahr Mathew Nyuma called on the Speaker and Parliament Administration to organise training for MPs on computer skills and the usability of electronic devices.
In another news, the Speaker emphasised the need to respect and uphold the 1991 Constitution.
He made the disclosure after taking his Oath of Office. He promised to uphold the Constitution and Rules of Parliament without subjectivity.
He also admonished MPs to do the same.
