Draft Legislation 45% 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 only change I made was that I indicated that "votes on bills" were available. I believe that the information should be marked as available even though it is found on a separate page. I made no changes to B6 even though transcripts may not always be up to date. I made this decision because transcripts are an optional characteristic in the first place. All the required characteristics were up to date.

I am accepting this submission because all the characteristics could be found in the dataset.
