The government may be gearing up for the 20th Knesset elections, but it is still working up until Israelis hit the polls.

On Monday, a memorandum of understanding for cooperation was signed between Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein (Likud) and Uganda Parliament Speaker Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga.

Under the agreement, the two parliaments will share with each other their experiences and knowledge gained in the areas of legislation, gender equality, women's empowerment and advancement, science and technology, health, education, the economy, and energy.

The agreement also promises that both will act to promote mutual interests within international events, such as assemblies, parliaments and the like.

"I am convinced that the memorandum of understanding will promote cooperation between the parliaments and countries," Knesset CEO Ronen Plot wrote in an address to the Ugandan parliament. "I am honored to present to you the document signed by the Speaker of the Knesset Yuli Edelstein, which we hope serves as a milestone in bilateral projects in the future. "

Plot also announced that he has invited Kadaga to visit Israel and the Knesset.

The Ugandan Parliament is the fifth to have signed a cooperation agreement recently with the Knesset. Others have included Ethiopia, Kenya, Romania, and Albania.
