What is the public problem that the commitment will address? The current public discussion of draft regulations practice does not ensure participation of citizens and entrepreneurs in the legislative process. There is no public planning of norm-setting activities, data search on draft regulations is difficult, there is no mechanism for responding to comments from the stakeholders.
What is the commitment? To ensure actual participation of citizens in the lawmaking process, amendments will be introduced to the legislation ensuring publication of legislative activity plans, mechanisms for responding to comments from stakeholders, and taking into account the alternative versions of drafts of normative acts.
A single electronic portal will also be created for all the draft normative acts.
How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem? Amendments to the legislation and creation of single portal for draft regulations will provide citizens with access to timely information about planned regulations and create opportunities for feedback.
Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values? Transparency: Improving citizens' access to information on the lawmaking process.
Citizen participation: Increasing citizen participation in public discussion and development of regulations drafts.
