ETLJB 24 February 2013 - The National Parliament of East Timor will expand its oversight of the executive by regularly communicating with all Ministers about the implementation of programs.

Prime Minister Xanana Gusmao was reported by Televizaun Timor-Leste on 22/02/2013 as saying that in the new political state affairs the Parliament would contact each minister to explain the progress they achieved in the implementation of their programs.

“There has been consensus that every three month the Parliament will contact each minister to explain progresses of their program implementation,” he said.

Gusmao said the objective of contacting each minister was to guarantee quality of the implementation of projects. He stressed that this was a proper way to measure progress of the programs implemented and to guarantee their quality. Source:
