Orientation for newly recruited Research Assistants

Orientation for newly recruited Research Assistants

The National Assembly Secretariat conducted a one day induction training for the newly recruited 35  research  assistants  assigned to the Members of the National Assembly on 8 March 2024. 

During the session, the Secretary General congratulated the research assistants on their appointment and provided them with an overview of Bhutanese Democracy. Additionally, they were briefed on the  roles and mandate of parliament members, the legislative process, parliamentary privileges, and the code of conduct. The orientation program also welcomed seven committee secretaries and three research officers.

The research assistants are recruited in line with the provision of the National Assembly (Amendment) Act, 2014, which mandates that each Member of the National Assembly of Bhutan is provided with a Research Assistant (RA) to enhance their efficiency and effectiveness. The primary duties of these research assistants include conducting research, surveys, analysis, report writing, and providing administrative support to both Members and the Secretariat.
