    There is a discrepancy between what the prime minister

    I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural.

    There is a discrepancy between what the prime minister has promised in her speech to the parliament and the results on the ground.

    I'd delete 'the' before 'parliament'.

    I'd go for promised rather than has promised.
