Draft Legislation 45% open

Czech Republic

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

findable_steps I think this requires a bit of an expertise - google search will find the correct link, but it is presented as a special app with a generic name (ODok). Finding the drafts requires multiple clicks. You have to locate the right (public) interface, open it and click enter.
