Manthri.lk is a site being launched this Friday (hence not live yet) which monitors and rates MPs. Broadly, for their productive time in Parliament, measuring how much they speak on topic and how much off. That’s a start and I assume they’re going to do the data collection and analysis. With that as a base there’s a lot of interesting stuff such a portal could do. People right now have little idea what is going on in Parliament and there’s little incentive to actually performing there.
I have no idea what this site will look like beyond the video above. If I was to provide some wild and useless suggestions one would be to, later, incorporate a payment gateway so MPs that don’t suck could also get cash donations through the site. Transparency can lead to tangible incentives as well.
But nevermind the hypothetical, good luck to the site and kudos to Asoka Obeyesekere and the Verite Research team.
