DEPUTY HOUSE SPEAKER PADIPAT Santipada said today (Sep.27) he plans to push for use of a Cloud servers system at parliament.
The deputy House speaker, who concurrently performs as a Move Forward MP of Phitsanulok, confirmed that he will put forward his initiative for the legislative branch to apply a Cloud servers system not only for lawmakers but all members of the public and the press to seamlessly access all data pertaining to varied House and Senate floor meetings, House and Senate committee meetings and other parliamentary affairs.
Padipat admitted that today’s parliamentary data storage system is yet to be substantially upgraded with digital technology to the extent that the sought-after Cloud servers system be constantly, ubiquitously available.
The deputy House speaker said the Cloud system will be ultimately cost-effective and instrumental to upgrading the legislators’ working efficiency and rendering an updated, constantly available service to the public.
In the meantime, Padipat suggested that the people who may visit their own MPs at parliament and observe a legislative process or floor debate at any given day be practically allowed to spend their time freely and unlimitedly as currently provided at Singapore’s parliament.
The deputy House speaker made his comments following his official trip to Singapore where he has learned that lawmakers over there are already on par with state-of-the-art computer systems and digital technology whilst the number of personnel employed at the island republic’s parliament only totals hundreds, compared to thousands in Thailand.
