The report has been written using the criteria developed by the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU). This is the first time that any organisation is undertaking the Evaluation of the Parliament using the IPU framework. This report, therefore, provides a baseline on the subject on a criteria that is internationally comparable. This report should be viewed as a work-in-progress. The findings are to be shared with the Parliament and their views sought.
