Uganda: Government, donors welcom MP scorecard (ANSA-Africa, 2 Aug 2010)
Kampala: The Government and the donor community yesterday welcomed the performance rating of MPs by the African Leadership Institute, calling it a "vital information tool" that can enable citizens to make informed decision and better choice in elections. Speaking at the launch of the report, Prime Minister Apolo Nsibambi said the assessment can enable MPs to know their strong and weak points and how to address them.
The donors noted that the scorecard provides citizens with impartial information upon which they can assess the performance of their MPs and hold them accountable.
