Advisor Rashid bin Muhammad bin Abdulrahman Bunajma, Secretary-General of the Council of Representatives, affirmed that the royal directives of His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa on using modern technologies and artificial intelligence (AI) have resulted in improving services across all sectors in Bahrain which contributed to many achievements.
The Secretary-General stressed the council’s keenness to utilise social media platforms, out of its belief in the importance of keeping pace with media development and employing it in an optimal manner to serve the council’s objectives of communication with citizens and enhancing their awareness of legislative, parliamentary work and the democratic process.
This came during his participation in the tenth edition of Conference of the Association of Secretaries-General of Arab Parliaments, which was held in Qatar on September 12-13 under the theme "Digital Democracy and Social Communication and the Role of Parliaments in Strengthening them".
Bunajma said the council launched the Digital Parliament project, which aims to invest in modern technologies and develop administrative and training performance through digital transformation.
It also launched a bundle of projects to support the progress of parliamentary work such as the electronic minutes; indexing, research and analysis process and the systems for electronic voting, notifications and the digital library.
