Members of Parliament (MPs) have witnessed the harmful consequences of ill-thought COVID-19 responses on individual and public health, as well as on governance, in their respective constituencies; in some contexts, legislative powers have been suspended or weakened with simultaneous expansions of executive power, with potentially far-reaching consequences for the rule of law and human rights.
