President of the Parliament of Montenegro opens the VII session of Children's Parliament

The VII Children's Parliament is organised by the Parliament of Montenegro in cooperation with Center for Children’s Rights of Montenegro, on the occasion of 20 November - the Day of adopting the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

President of the Parliament of Montenegro Mr Ranko Krivokapić today opened the VII session of Children's Parliament. He emphasised that the Children’s Parliament, which has already become traditional, was the greatest Montenegrin parliament, bringing the joy of a special kind.  So far, over 15 thousand of children passed through the Montenegrin Parliament, noting and stressing that democracy was truth, love and passion, and that the Parliament has felt that passion mostly by working with children.   In his address, he emphasised that each Children’s parliament so far has brought something new, expressing hope that participants of this year’s VII Children's Parliament would traditionally continue their good path.

The children, as during the previous sessions, were interested in the actions of the authorities in the previous six years with regard to their requests, sent from parliamentary benches.

Participants of the Children’s Parliament stressed that school should be a place where logical and critical opinion was demanded, potentials recognised and skills strengthened, thus preparing children to be responsible citizens of the 21st century. Specific problems were indicated: number of classes, manner of assessing, quality of textbooks and peer violence. The children reminded today of the initiative from the earlier session of the Children Parliament on establishing “The day of open door for children”, and addressed MPs with a hope that children’s session would influence on them.

Today’s session was attended by 47 representatives of local children’s parliaments from 23 Montenegrin municipalities, representatives of the Government of Montenegro, representatives of MP groups in the Parliament of Montenegro, representatives of domestic institutions and international organisations dealing with rights of the child as well as members of diplomatic corps.
