Detail

Conducted on behalf of the National Assembly, this project looked into how best to strengthen public accountability, including the enhancement of parliamentary oversight and ensure transparency in the appointment and dismissal of CEOs of oversight institutions such as Auditor General, Director on Corruption and Economic Crime, etc. The primary role of the said institutions is to strengthen the role of parliament in maintaining oversight. The project thus sought to lead to the direct the supervision of the institutions being directly supervised by Parliament, and not the executive, which is a global best practice.
