Draft Legislation 0% 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 original submission will be accepted because it had accurately answered B2 with No, although it appears that the original submitter provided a different reason. As a reviewer I also believe B2 should be a No, mainly because the site does not contain a clear database of bills and also because even if a bill has been made available it is missing two required characteristics. It is worth mentioning that the bill I was able to view is available for download in pdf, odt ,and xml formats.

This submission will be accepted because it correctly states that data is not made available by the government.
