This text describes how the Parliament carries out each of his three main functions (representing citizen interests, empowering government, scrutinizing the government’s performance). The ratings obtained provide an overview of the strengths and the weaknesses of the Parliament’s engagement in the budget process. The study also suggests that parliamentary committees take a critical look at their tasks and objectives to assure themselves that they are getting the greatest value for the Parliament and the citizens. One way to begin would be for committees to periodically report on their own performance.
