"Parliaments are, after all, the governing institution closest to the citizens, meant to provide citizens with a direct link to the policymaking process and a method of accountability and oversight of other branches of government" says Mr. Ranko Krivokapic, President of the Parliament of Montenegro, and newly elected President of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly, in this article.  He underlines the importance of  "transparency and openness as key to reinforcing the trust between parliaments and voters".
