The best part of being a LAMP Fellow is that no two days are similar. Every day presents a new challenge. Working with a senior MP, I have to be on my toes throughout. To the extent that during Parliament sessions, I watched the news on TV right before I slept and even woke up to the news, in order to identify issues that would be taken up during the day on the Parliament floor.
The Legislative Assistants to Members of Parliament (LAMP) Fellowship places one legislative assistant to work with one MP for a period of 11 months. The Fellowship exposes LAMP Fellows to the working of Parliament and the legislative process. The Fellowship encourages the best and the brightest young individuals to get involved in public service.
The primary role of a LAMP Fellow is to provide customised research support to the assigned MP they work with for the entire duration of the Fellowship. This would entail providing research inputs to help them fulfill their parliamentary duties such as asking questions, raising matters of public importance, participating in debates, writing speeches, drafting private member Bills, among others.
