Utilise recess to monitor Gov’t programmes, Among tells MPs
Speaker of Parliament Anita on Thursday, September 7, 2023, sent the House on recess, urging all legislators to utilise the 20-day period to monitor government programmes in their respective constituencies.
“Honorable members, at the end of today’s sitting, we will go on recess until 28th September 2023. Unlike previous recess periods where some committees continued to transact business, this recess will be an absolute one,” said Among in her communication at the commencement of the Thursday plenary.
She added: ‘’I expect all of you to head to your constituencies to monitor the implementation of Government programmes.’’
As provided for under Article 90 of the Constitution of the Republic of Uganda, the Members of Parliament are mandated to carry out oversight of all the government programmes undertaken in their constituencies all over the country.
The same law mandates them to monitor, evaluate and bring to the attention of ministers.
