Draft Legislation 0% open

Malaysia

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

The original submission/review included this link: http://www.parlimen.gov.my/bills-dewan-rakyat.html?uweb=dr&searchref=bills-dewan-rakyat&str=&doctype%5B%5D=DR-bill&dokumen%5B%5D=ruu&searchref=bills-dewan-rakyat&searchrefcode=dr&str=&str2=&DATETYPE=0&DATERANGE%5B%5D=&DATERANGE%5B%5D=&takwimnum%5B%5D=13%7C1%7C1&takwimnum%5B%5D=1%7C5%7C2, where the title and status of bills are available to view, with a link to download the content of the bill in PDF format. Only the status and content are available, while the author, transcripts and votes are not posted. As such, I have modified the submission/review to reflect the availability of the data.
