What is the public problem that the commitment will address?
Approval of laws in relevant offices, processing of legislative documents and legislature timeline is defined in the article no. 97 of constitution. Parliament cannot delay the proposed layout more than a month and Senate must take a decision within fifteen days. However, current situation is different and law on processing of legislative documents is not being implemented. There isn’t a platform for public to track the progress on legislation making. Electronic system can track the status of legislative documents. status, location (office where it is being processed) of every document can be tracked.

What is the commitment?
Law on processing of legislative documents has clearly defined the process of legislative documents, however, it’s not being implemented in relevant offices and processing of legislative documents takes months and years.
It is expected that the development of online portal to follow up the legislative documents shall ascertain public participation and make offices implement the law on processing of legislative documents to promote transparency and accountability.

How will the commitment contribute to solving the public problem?
Developing the electronic system and using technology will pave the ground for public participation in pursuit of processing of legislative documents. CSOs and private sector can share their inputs and views online pertinent to laws which are being processed. Electronic system can track the status of legislative documents, status, location (office where it is being processed) of every document can be tracked. Based on law a required time would be intercalated into the system for every office, in case of delays reasons would interpolate. System measures delays and automatically displays from the date of registration. CSOs and public can identify the delinquent authorities and advocate in the event of any delays. Herewith, authorities are obliged to implement the law and enhance accountability and transparency. Eventually, law on processing of legislative documents would be implemented. System will have to provide tracking details of legislative document processing on real time basis for CSOs and public.

Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values?
This commitment is related to all values of OGP. Developing online platform comes off the latest technology practice. Public and CSOs can refer to platform and participate in the processing of legislative documents. Through public participation and registration of legislative documents in the relevant offices transparency and accountability would be promoted
