Draft Legislation 65% 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?

Your submission is valid. Thank you very much for contributing to the Global Open Data Index. • While content of a bill and authors are available, information regarding votes cannot be found. • The original submission was missing some crucial data indicators and was modified accordingly on the following counts: status of the bill can be found for most legislation, detailed transcripts of debate are available, data from last week can be found. Full bill information is in PDF. Some are available in HTML and CSV – however the latter format does not always work. As such, data is not downloadable at once.
