Draft Legislation 0% open

Saint Kitts and Nevis

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?

Resubmitted by Reviewer. Original submission rejected due to wrong information. • After further research, a structure for providing Draft Legislation publicly is available on the Governments website -- however, the information is not properly populated. ( > Government (menu item) > Parliament (secondary menu item) > Parliamentary Proceedings).

Resubmitted by reviewer after rejecting original submission. Structure for a Draft Legislation exists, but not yet populated. The Parliamentary Proceedings section that may host future draft legislation is sub-headed as follows: "Find out Parliamentary proceedings, track current bills, watch live footage, access public records and follow topical issues.""
