Opposition or Minority parties are integral to Parliaments and contribute greatly to the outputs of the House as a whole. Opposition parties do not only represent an alternative government but also, they are responsible for challenging the policies of the government and producing different policies where appropriate.
National Parliaments have a role in ensuring that the targets set forth in development agendas such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are achieved. In order to do this successfully, reliable data and information is required. Parliamentary Research services and Committee Secretariats play a crucial role in the daily operations of legislatures.
