Draft Legislation 100% open

Japan

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

    Reviewer comments

    Your submission is valid. Thank you very much for contributing to the Global Open Data Index. The content of the legislation is not available directly on the Cabinet Legislation Bureau website. It is posted by each of the ministries relevant to the legislation on their respective website (Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Public Management, etc.) Each ministry website is clearly and visibly linked beside the legislation on the Cabinet Legislation Bureau website.
