Opening Of Parliament

On day one of Parliament the MP’s do a process called “taking the oath of allegiance” (swearing on the bible) to confirm their loyalty to Parliament roles and the sovereign. They also elect a Speaker of The House. On the second day they have a formal ceremony to open parliament, the Governor general's messenger is then sent to the debating chamber to elect members of the Legislative Council Chamber.
