Draft Legislation 17% open

Turkey

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 submitter posted this link, and while it states that the information is searchable, I was unable to find any draft laws for review. Nevertheless, the portal is available here: https://www.tbmm.gov.tr/develop/owa/tasari_teklif_sd.sorgu_baslangic. Per the submitter: "I googled the draft legislation query in Turkey and my findings lead me to the website of TBMM which is where the data of all draft legislations is shared."
