Politics is all about behind-the-scenes negotiations but when I arrived at the Assembly this morning, I wondered if I’d stumbled across the secret room where these negotiations take place?
Perhaps the parties are already holding talks about possible coalition formations after the May 5th Assembly election?
Perhaps it’s a new room designed to be somewhere that those who disagree with each other within parties can go to make up?
It’s none of the above.
In fact it’s part of an event being held by the Council for Education and World Citizenship which is using the Assembly’s education facilities to teach students what it’s like at a UN conference.
Perhaps the concept is one that could be borrowed though.
Assembly members may need a negotiation room in the coming weeks and months.
