Draft Legislation 0% 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 original submission was rejected for the following two reasons: 1) it was based on an URL which led to laws, not bills. As a reviewer I was able to locate the URL where the content of bills was found (I have noted in the comments). 2) The original submission had incorrectly answered B2 with yes (it had stated that content and author of bills was available). B2 should be answered with a NO because two required characteristics are missing.

The original submission was rejected. This submission more accurately indicates that data published by government is missing the required characteristics.
