    The following questions about how CDFs play into representation – a focal role of legislators – highlight what effect CDFs can have on other dimensions of parliament.

  • a.

    In advancing the development goals of a particular constituency, there is a contradiction between a legislator’s party and personal constituency.

  • b.

    Do CDFs hinder programmatic political parties and their ability to push public policy/goods given that both CDFs and parties may be pursuing the same or similar development objectives?

  • c.

    The legislator’s performance in the use of their CDF allocation becomes a measure of effectiveness of that legislator. Do CDFs undermine the legislator’s national policymaking role or focus when high performance requires significant attention paid to one constituency?

  • d.

    Is the perception that CDFs are a measure or indicator of legislators’ representational efforts accurate? Do other indicators provide equal or better measures?

  • e.

    Are CDFs a legislative incursion on the executive role?
