Draft Legislation 60% 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 URLs lead to very good data that contain all the characteristics which I believe were very easy to find. The only changes I made were to B5 (see comments). I also removed XLS as one of the available formats because the files provided in that format contain insufficient information.

This submission should be accepted. Relevant URLs are clearly identified and all the required characteristics of the dataset could be verified.
