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.
Legislative Data for Afghanistan is not available to the public. User submitting data provides a reason as to why this data is not available. Comments read as follows: "There is no single agency that works on draft [legislation]. Three agencies share this: the government organization that requires a law, the Ministry of Justice, and the Cabinet Legal Committee. None of them share drafts to the public [...] This is a huge problem in Afghanistan. Draft laws are secret to the government agencies. They hardly share with stakeholders."
