African Leadership Institute (AFLI) has revealed that its annual assessment of the Members of Parliament has played a big role in improving the performance of the Members of Uganda Parliament.
The assessment of AFLI called the Parliamentary Scorecard has been in the past vehemently criticized as being partisan and not accurate enough in its assessment of Uganda’s legislators.
However the Legal Adviser of AFLI, David Betham Okweri told journalists in Kampala that despite such criticisms AFLI is glad to note that its assessment has positively impacted on the performance of the Members of Parliament.
Okweri says in the recent past more MPs have established offices in their constituencies and participated more in Plenary Sessions of Parliament compared to the past.
The African Leadership Institute (AFLI) is set to launch the Uganda Parliamentary Scorecard of the 8th Parliament for a 3rd year in a row on July 28th 2010.
