Of the three, only technology indicators have shown their best achievements in the form of easy public access to official information on the parliament website. Transparency and representation have not been fully open and in accordance with public expectations. Seen by the large number of public participation in the form of criticism, suggestions, proposals that oversee the performance of the parliament.
