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.

The Botswana e-laws website, initiated by the Attorney General's Chambers has a section on the website for bills here, http://www.elaws.gov.bw/default.php?UID=659, however there is only one bill listed, and the link to view the content doesn't work. For these reasons, the data is not available online.
