Manthri.lk is a unique website in Sri Lanka that tracks the Parliamentary interactions of all MPs. As noted on the site,
Manthri.lk is a pioneering trilingual website which, for the first time, profiles the actions and activities of each of the 225 Members of Parliament in Sri Lanka. As a MP monitoring scorecard, Manthri.lk recognizes the need for accountability between MPs and their electorates. In doing so, it seeks to promote transparency and good governance in order to improve Sri Lanka’s democratic framework.
Manthri.lk ranks MP’s on the basis of productive time spent, on a comprehensive collection of topics (42 in total) based on an objective and impartial coding system. Topics range from Foreign Affairs and Economic Development to Human Rights and Reconciliation. Manthri.lk collects its data from an in-depth analysis of the parliamentary Hansard, a verbatim record of parliamentary proceedings. The data that is captured is then entered into a detailed classification coding system.
