The Parliamentary Performance Scorecard Project is a tool used to provide Ugandans with critical information about the performance of the Institution of Parliament and their respective Members of Parliament (MPs) on an annual basis. By placing in the hands of citizens, evidenced based information, the project empowers citizens to monitor performance of their elected representatives on a regular basis as well as empower them to make informed choices at election time. It is based on the idea that it is possible for a people to work within the framework of representative democracy but retain some form of active citizenry and authority to exercise demands for accountable and responsive leadership in between the electoral cycles.
The Scorecard is distinctive in that it offers objective, reliable, and transparent information of how MPs perform in plenary sessions, the different standing and session committees and in their constituencies. By disseminating accurate, objective and comprehensive information about the performance of each elected MP, Africa Leadership Institute (AFLI) hopes to help foster greater transparency and democratic accountability in Uganda.
AFLI through the Scorecard project promotes the right of access to information as provided in the Constitution of the Republic of Uganda and the Access to Information Act(2005).
