Appointment of Grassroots Advisers after the Writ of Election is issued
Response to parliamentary question on the appointment of Grassroot Advisers and if they can continue with their roles after the Writ of Election is issued
22 March 2023
- Grassroots Advisers (GRAs) are appointed by the People’s Association (PA), a statutory board under the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY). They help the PA with its mission to foster social cohesion and also connect with, and engage people on, Government policies and schemes.
- The term of a GRA’s appointment is determined by PA and is not tied to the term of Parliament. As with all Government Agencies which continue to function after a Writ of Election is issued, GRAs continue to discharge their responsibilities. In this period of time, Government agencies also continue to receive and will consider appeals made by members of the public, or on their behalf.
