The Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) renewed the Sultanate's membership in the Executive Committee of the Union's Young Parliamentarians Forum, represented by the Arab Group, during the Sultanate's participation in the 140th General Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) in Doha, Qatar.
Thus, the Sultanate has retained this position, after the renewal of the membership of Hon.Dr.Rayya Bint Salem Al Manthari, State Council member and member of the Executive Committee of the Forum of Young Parliamentarians representing the Arab Group for the second time in a row. She was elected for the first time during the Sultanate's participation in the conference of IPU at its 136th session in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh in April 2017.
Hon.Dr.Rayya Bint Salem Al Manthari, has been actively involved in the activities of the Forum over the past two years, represented by the Arab Group.
The Young Parliamentarians Forum was established to lead the work enhancing youth participation in parliaments and ensure that young parliamentarians play their full role in the work of parliament.
The approval of an important IPU resolution in 2010 on promoting youth participation in the democratic process led to the establishment of the Forum in 2013.
The Forum is led by a 12-person council - representing the six geopolitical groups who in turn elect the president. Every two years.
