KAMPALA - Parliament has drafted an ambitious strategic plan in which it intends to become a transformational, independent and people-centered parliament by 2020.

It was unveiled Tuesday by parliament's planning director Dison Okumu at parliament during the orientation of MPs.

Okumu urged the 10th parliament to focus on the plan to achieve increased public involvement and participation in parliamentary business.

Kabarole Woman MP Silvia Rwabwogo called for consultation prior to passing of laws.

"In the 9th parliament, I remember it was only when the House was handling the Marriage and Divorce Bill that MPs were sent back by the Speaker to consult their constituencies," she said.

"We need to always ensure our constituencies are consulted before we consider any Bill."

During the last parliament whose tenure ended last month, out of more than 102 Bills legislators debated, it is only on the Marriage and Divorce Bill that MPs were asked to go back and consult their constituencies.

Rubanda West MP Eng. Denis Sabiti proposed that party causes should be controlled so that legislators frequently present interests of their constituencies on matters before parliament
