Reviewer comment

This project is laudable as most parliaments especially in developing countries do not have the information and communications technology capacity to deploy useful emerging information management resources to meeting the challenges of the new information age. However it not clear how the system is going to attract public interest to make the concept of "inside parliament a reality. It does not clearly show how the MPs themselves are going to be engaged in the process which is expected to roll down to their electorate or constituency. As a good step the Parliamentary administration set-up seemed to be more engaged and it is hoped it would catch up with the entire stakeholders.

This will at the same time achieve the purpose of promoting the use of open source applications if well deployed over Africa. One step in that direction is worth it.

The project can engage experts in online infrastructure to enhance its social network and other interactive facilities and also making the interface user-friendly to match the voluminous documentations, otherwise the resources may be available but cannot be used to the depth it requires.

I think the attempt to redefine the various dimensions of a modern parliament is laudable and needs to be promoted and enhanced.

It should have a blend of technical experts in ICT and governance fields and we can see more progress.
