Draft Legislation 60% 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?

As a reviewer I changed B3 to indicate "votes" were not present. While it was possible to find a summary of the vote (how many pro, how many against), I could not find names of each member and how they voted. I also changed B7 to No based on the information provided on the website.

This submission will be accepted because all the required characteristics are present in the data set.
