The appraisal records and assesses MPs’ thoughts about what they found most absorbing during the visits. The report also encapsulates what the MPAs witnessed in terms of three basic functions of law-making, oversight, and representation and how the best practices can be replicated in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly. The MPs identified five key areas of reform i.e strengthening of parliamentary committees, devising mechanism to commence public petitions, introduce zero hour and Chief Ministers Hour to consolidate oversight over the executive, setting up of code of conduct/ethics and punctuality standards and last but not the least, strategize to improve upon the Secretariat support to MPs and committees viz a viz research and information services, drafting legislative proposals and increased public outreach.
