Draft Legislation 65% open

Montenegro


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 submission fulfills all characteristics. Once on the Parliament website, the data is accessible under the heading "Meetings," clicking on either Sittings of Parliament or Laws and regulations, where draft laws are listed, with linked PDF documents, available for download. Per the submitter, while transcripts might not be available exactly, minutes are included: "Instead of transcripts, minutes of the meetings are given, ex http://www.skupstina.me/zakoni/web/dokumenta/zakoni-i-drugi-akti/1141/1196-7824-32-1-16-1-2.pdf." As with National Laws, the data is openly licensed, as the submitter states that "copyright is claimed on the footer "© 2016 Skupština Crne Gore. Sva prava zadržana." however according to Article 8 of Copyright law, Copyright protection shall not include: 2) official texts in the legislative, administrative and judicial domain. http://www.wipo.int/wipolex/en/details.jsp?id=11369."
