The European Union funded the Parliament Watch and Reforms Project (PWRP) to observe the proceedings of the Senate and the National Assembly, and the 13 selected Standing Committees.
TDEA-FAFEN employed the services of professionals who observed the interventions of the parliamentarians on the floor of the house and provided detailed reports to the TDEA secretariat. Daily factsheets were prepared and disseminated among relevant stakeholders and uploaded on FAFEN’s website (www.fafen.org) and TDEA-FAFEN’s parliamentary information portal (www.openparliament.pk).
TDEA-FAFEN’s parliamentary information portal (openparliament.pk) is a one-stop window for all parliamentary interventions carried out on the floors of all six legislatures i.e. Senate, National Assembly, Punjab Assembly, Sindh Assembly, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly, and Balochistan Assembly. The objective of developing such a portal is to bridge the gap between citizens and the elected representatives.
TDEA-FAFEN, on its own initiative and with the help of its partner organizations, is also observing the proceedings of all provincial assemblies and disseminating daily factsheets to relevant stakeholders. Its analysts skim through the parliamentary data sent by their observers, place it on the portal for the use of any interested individual after verification.
