On January 28th, 2021, the Parliament of Nauru enacted the Parliamentary Service Act 2020 and will come into force with effect from 01 July 2021.The enactment of the legislation is a key feature of strengthening the capacity of the Nauru Parliament to effectively undertake its legislative, oversight and representative roles.
The objectives of the Parliamentary Service Act 2020 are to:
The recently enacted legislation follows on from the support provided by UNDP Pacific Office since 2018 to the Parliament of Nauru, to consider options for achieving the realisation of Parliamentary autonomy. To support the Parliament of Nauru in its preparation for the implementation of the Parliamentary Service Act 2020, the UNDP Pacific Office, under the Nauru Inclusive and Accountable Governance Project, is supplementing the capacities of the Office of Parliamentary Services, with staff from other parliaments (called the Transition team) in the pacific region as part of the interparliamentary cooperation to assist with the planning and implementation of activities for achieving the realisation of the Parliamentary Service Act 2020.
In this regard, UNDP is seeking to recruit an experienced legal drafter, to be part of the Transition Team to assist the Parliament of Nauru draft and undertake legal reviews of regulations, determinations and other instruments necessary to fulfil the vision and support the implementation of the Parliamentary Service Act 2020. The Legal Drafter is expected to work closely with the Speaker of the Nauru Parliament, the Clerk of the Nauru Parliament, and in consultation with the Transition Team when executing this consultancy.
