This documentary takes a look at the evolution of the National Parliament of Timor-Leste from the formation of the Constitutional Assembly in 2001 to the establishment of the present-day National Parliament, with the support of UNDP and funding from the European Union and other international community. Through the words of key interlocutors, the documentary sheds light on the history of the parliament, its role, mandate, and functions, as well as progress achieved, challenges faced, and the vision for the future. Timor-Leste has had three successful parliamentary elections in its young history since the restoration of independence, which has contributed to the democratization of the nation and the well-being of its people.
