Draft Legislation 85% open


What data is expected?

Data about the bills discussed within national parliament as well as votings on bills (not to mix with passed national law). Data on bills must be available for the current legislation period. Open data on the law-making process is crucial for parliamentary transparency: What does a bill text say and how does it change over time? Who introduces a bill? Who votes for and against it? Where is a bill discussed next, so the public can participate in debates? This data category draws on work by the National Democratic Institute (NDI) and the Declaration of Parliamentary Openness.

  • Content of bill
  • Author of bill
  • Votes on bill per member of parliament
  • Transcripts of debates on bill
  • Status of bill

How open is the data?

The bills are all public as their status, authors and possible edit. The votes per party and individually per MP as well as the debates are published a few days after the sitting. The votes are in Excel format and indicate the decision that has been voted in order throughout the day. Some of the decisions are procedural. Others affect if and how a bill will be voted. Others still affect individual parts, statements or even words of the bill. The transcripts have indications of these proceedings. Content of bills are available in PDF and some in HTML.

Your submission is valid. Thank you very much for contributing to the Global Open Data Index.
