Learning process

JOURNALISTS in print, broadcast and television are learning the intricacies of reporting parliamentary proceedings in a workshop hosted by the UNDP.

With the majority of working journalists having never covered parliamentary proceedings, the workshop aims to introduce them to instances they may face following the official opening of parliament after the general election.

Workshop co-ordinator Patrick Gregorym, the BBC's former managing editor for political programs, said journalists were important to parliamentary proceedings because it was through their reports that people were able to get a window to parliament.

"It is important then to be able to see what laws are being passed so they see democracy in action and the journalists should really see themselves as giving a window on the world to the electorate and what the elected politicians are doing," Mr Gregorym said.
