AFLI, that monitor and act as an external arbiter of the work of politicians. The

Interpellation is the most threatening of parliamentary monitoring activities. A
parliament member could interpellate a minister or even the prime minister, thus
questioning the government's competence and/or integrity; ultimately, a vote of
no confidence in the executive branch could follow. Like its predecessors, the
Egyptian Parliament during the transitional period between 1976 and 1990 was
more of a monitoring than a legislative body, and a timid monitor at that.14 As
shown in ...

A more open and responsive parliament can further enable citizens and CSOs to
follow and monitor voting patterns of parliamentarians. Taking advantage of

adopting new tools to open their legislative data and increase citizen
participation in the legislative process (OGP, n.d. a). At the same time, citizens

In comparison with the powerful inter- and intraparty tools that parties use to
monitor the government, the traditional tools for parliamentary monitoring of the
executive (legislation and various oversight devices) seem quite ineffective (De
Winter 1998). In parliamentary systems, Parliament can monitor government
behaviour through the role it plays in government legislation (including budget
bills). An even more powerful steering tool is for Parliament to pass its own
legislation. In spite ...

Gentleman said that £2,000 was granted last year for monitors in convent schools
; but of the total number of schools that had first class monitors appointed, only
fifty-seven were convent schools; and, therefore, it was not true to say that the
grant was exclusively to give first class monitors to convent schools. When he
spoke last year of the grant to the first-class monitors in convent schools, though
he expressed some doubt whether it might not be prejudicial to the general
education of ...
