On Friday, April 20, nearly twenty third-grade students from Fontvieille were received by President Stéphane Valeri and Marc Mourou, President of the Commission for Education and Youth, at the National Council building on the Rock.
The children took their places in the seats of the elected representatives from which they followed a tailored presentation of the role and the functioning of the Assembly.
This followed a very lively exchange between elected officials and the children on how to vote, on the role of the National Councillors, on the operation of the building itself, on the laws passed by the assembly, as well as on the work of the professionals who assist the elected representatives on a daily basis.
The pupils asked many questions and wanted to find out how to become a member of the National Council and even President of the Assembly. Several children announced their intention to want to become National Councillors when they are older.
The National Assembly has welcomed the latest graduates to the Principality’s Police Force.
An incredible 12-month time lapse video showing the creation of Monaco’s mammoth land extension project has just been released.
Monaco has a new bailiff, or huissier as known locally, who was sworn in earlier this week.
General crime rates in the Principality dropped by a significant 16% between the years 2016 and 2019, and street crime by an impressive 52%.
