Monday’s parliamentary sitting starts at 1.30pm.
Singapore’s parliamentary proceedings will be livestreamed for the first time on Monday (Jan 4), announced the Ministry of Communications and Information (MCI).
Monday’s parliamentary sitting starts at 1.30pm and it will be available to the public on MCI’s YouTube channel in both the original language and English-translated versions.
Video clips of all speeches and exchanges in the parliamentary proceedings will also be made available to the public online, within hours of each sitting.
Monday’s announcement comes after the Government agreed in principle to livestream proceedings in September last year.
The Hansard, a written record of all parliamentary proceedings – will also be available to the public online. Those who want to attend the parliamentary sitting in person can do so too.
Among the questions that will be asked in Monday’s proceedings include how the COVID-19 vaccination programme will be rolled out and the earliest projected date to commence the programme by Member of Parliament Dr Lim Wee Kiak, as well as whether individuals who have been vaccinated will be given a ‘vaccination card’ to facilitate identification that may be required from time to time, by Member of Parliament Foo Mee Har.
