The Speaker of the Cook Islands Parliament, Hon. Tutai Tura visited the Parliament of Western Australia in September 2023. The Cook Islands Speaker was welcomed by the President of the Western Australia Legislative Council, Hon. Alanna Clohesy, MLC and the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly, Hon. Michelle Roberts, MLA then met with Parliamentary Clerks and staff, toured Parliament House and observed question time in both Chambers. The Cook Islands Parliament and the Western Australian Parliament are ‘twinned’ via the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association’s twinning program between the CPA Australia and CPA Pacific Regions. While the formal twinning arrangement has been in place since 2007, the relationship between the Western Australian Parliament and the Cook Islands has existed for well over 27 years.
