Speaker of Parliament, Anita Among, has informed the 11th Parliament that the performances of its members during the last session will be made public.
In a bid to enhance accountability and monitoring, Speaker Among announced on June 20 that attendance and participation in the House would be closely monitored using a biometric finger log-in system.
The attendance and performance records of the previous session will be published next week, with the aim of ensuring that legislators fulfill their constitutional duties and improve their chances of re-election in the 2026 general elections.
Emphasizing the importance of a people-centered Parliament, Speaker Among urged the MPs to focus on service delivery and work towards being reelected.
Her commitment to prioritizing service delivery, enacting sound legislation, and producing timely committee reports has been evident since assuming the position of Speaker on March 25, 2022.
She has also taken a strong stance against corruption, bias, and bribery, aiming to foster an environment conducive to quality work.
Throughout her tenure, Speaker Among has consistently addressed concerns regarding absenteeism among both MPs and cabinet members. At the recent sittings held at the Kololo Independence Grounds in Kampala, she reiterated her determination to take strict action against any cases of indiscipline or inappropriate conduct detected among lawmakers.
Leader of the Opposition, Mr. Mathias Mpuuga, has also expressed dissatisfaction with certain observations within the opposition. He has called upon his team to fulfill their duties as expected, aligning with Speaker Among’s focus on improved performance and accountability within the Parliament.
