This term we have been learning about Parliament. We have looked at the difference between government and parliament, NZ parliament, who is in government, how our government works and we compared democracy to dictatorship.

Three things that I learned are NZ parliament are:

  • John Key sits on the fourth set on the right side of the speaker.
  • David Carter is the speaker of the house.
  • The opposition leader is Andrew Little.
