Abstract

This article endeavours to highlight a variety of issues around accountability and appraisal and does so from the perspective of parliamentary systems of government.  These include many African countries as well as Australia, Barbados, Canada, India, New Zealand, the United Kingdom (UK). This should be an appropriate perspective as existing literature, with the exception of that from Australia, has relatively little to say about the role of parliamentarians and political parties (Hurley 2005; McKemmish 2005
