MP says parliament unsuccessful, urges media, NGOs to monitor performance

MP Sirkut Shamsul-din, representing New Generation bloc, has said the parliament’s presidency has been totally unsuccessful in running the session, saying the poor management has paralyzed the parliament.

The frequent absences, interference for the sake of appearing on TV and creating chaos sometimes prevented other members to fulfill their tasks, he added.

The parliament’s mission is to monitor the government’s performance, however, it lacks authorities to monitor and assess its performance, he said urging media channels and NGOs to monitor the parliament’s performance, evaluate it and submit these reports to committees in question.

Millions of dollars, according to Shamsul-din, were disbursed without offering the country anything. He also criticized the delay in electing the heads of the parliamentary committees and voting on essential bills, that could achieve progress for the government and people.
