Presentation Transcript


Why we need to monitor our Elected Representatives (ER’s)

  • Steady decline in the quality of governance in the last three decades

  • Growing frustration amongst citizens

  • Elections – the only time when citizens get a ‘real’ say

  • Looking at the growing deficiency in governance and the increasing needs of the citizens

We believe there is a need for a continuous dialogue with the ER’s and have developed a report card on the Performance of the ER’s which can form the basis of such a Dialogue


The Constitution as a Basis for monitoring of Elected Representatives

  • ERs derive their powers for functioning through the Constitution

  • They are mandated to Attend Sessions, Raise people’s Issues, Debate, Participate in Discussions and Pass legislations.

  • The Constitution defines their powers and rules of functioning, hence only the Constitution can provide the parameters for their monitoring.
