Parliaments tend to enhance transparency and promote accountability in front of decline of public trust of citizens for democratic institutions by embracing new technologies for structuring an e-parliament, to perform more effectively their primary functions of lawmaking, representation, and oversight. Sustainability as principle of governance should be integrated in decision making processes driving behaviors of public organizations. The aim of this paper is to provide a framework of analysis to explain how parliaments are embracing new technologies for seeking legitimacy as more open and democratic representative institutions or sustainable institutions that develop sources of knowledge to build a participatory democracy in order o support public trust and improve dialogue between parliamentary institution and citizen.
