Following last year's Parliament 101 event, CAPE and the Legislative Assistants for Louis Ng (MP, Nee Soon East) return with the first session in CAPE’s series on Singapore's parliamentary processes, this time focusing on Budget 2019.
Come learn about the importance of the annual Budget in charting Singapore's direction for the year, and find out how you can channel your voice to our national decision-making processes.
CAPE and the Legislative Assistants will bring you through questions like:
- What are the Committee of Supply debates?
- What are budget cuts, why are they called budget cuts?
- Who are the participants during budget debates, and what are their functions?
- How can the public access or contribute to these proceedings?
Followed by a Q&A with MP Louis Ng and youth activist Daryl Yang, during which participants can suggest budget cuts to be raised in Parliament.
This event is presented by CAPE in collaboration with the Legislative Assistants for Louis Ng (MP, Nee Soon East).
CAPE (Community for Advocacy & Political Education) was founded by a group of students from Yale-NUS College and NUS Law. We are a community that examines local affairs relating to civil society, and provides avenues for Singaporeans to contribute constructively.
This event is co-hosted with A Good Space – where changemakers flourish as a community to imagine and create experiences that expand perspectives across diverse social issues.
From Poverty Simulations to a Feast with Seniors, come learn about a wide range of social issues through innovative activities. To learn more and join the community, visit their website at: agoodspace.org
