The Pre-professional Parliamentary Support Program (PPSP) is a first of its kind in Nepal which is unique and exciting opportunity for young Nepalese citizens of Karnali State to learn law-making and public policy. PPSP Fellows are mentored by a Member of Parliament (MP) of Karnali State and work with the assigned MPs around 26 weeks (16 hours a week), for an active session in a parliament. The primary role of a PPSP Fellow is to deliver extensive research support to her/his MP for their parliamentary work. This involves drafting parliamentary questions for the MP, preparing speeches/documents for discussions, raising matters of public importance, drafting private members’ bills etc. Essentially, fellows are the knowledge-assistants of State MPs at the parliament of Karnali State.
When parliament is not in session, PPSP Fellows participate with policy makers, experts from think-tanks, academicians, journalists and leaders from distinct institutions by contributing in workshops on significant policy and development issues. PPSP Fellows also participate in field visits during the inter-session period for a practical experience to governance at the grass root level.
PPSP Karnali is organized by Pokhara Research Center (PRC) with collborating Hriti Foundation.
