The Perception of Parliamentary Control How to Make it Attractive ?

By explicitly granting parliamentary assemblies the power to control the government, the revision of the Constitution sanctions an evolution of control procedures decided by the MPs themselves. It prompts them to adopt significant changes in several directions ; a collective internal reflection about the meaning of this control function and the way it can be articulated with the function of evaluating public policies, the necessary programming of the actions it triggers, and its affirmation as a competence shared between the opposition and the majority. It also invites them to reconsider procedures in order to adapt them to the public debate, to restrict the distance between public session and committee work, and to pay attention to their transparency and efficiency. By affirming this function, the Constitutional revision forces the assemblies to demonstrate their creativity and to proceed to a radical change in the way they operate. The moment of control, which is exercised in the name of the citizens to whom Parliament lends its means and weapons, should be a moment when MPs are attentive to citizens and allow their participation.
