Description

What is the public problem that the commitment will address?
 Implementation of the constitutional and legislative provisions in
terms of participatory and citizen-based democracy.
 Implementation by the House of Representatives of the
constitutional reforms in order to modernize its action and ensure a
better openness and communication with the citizens.
 The House of Representatives has devoted two chapters of its
bylaws to the pinpointing of the procedures of the practical
implementation of these rights.

What does the commitment consist of?
The commitment amounts to the implementation of a system of petitions and
motions within the House of Representatives.
A committee in charge of the reception and the management of the legislative
petitions and motions of citizens, is set up at the level of the bureau of the
House of Representatives. Within its annual action plan, it intends to
organize meetings/debates at the central and territorial levels with NGOs,
which do supervise the initiatives conducted by the citizens in the fields of
legislative petitions and motions, define the common frameworks of action
and elaborate the awareness raising tools (a practical guide) of the stake of
their actions and the procedures to follow.
What comes at stake at this stage, as well, is the development of the IT
platform for the management of the motions and the petitions. Such an
infrastructure is supposed to guarantee more transparency and fluidity.

How shall the commitment contribute to solving the public problem?
The House of Representatives, by virtue of its stand as a depository of the
legislative authority has fully assumed its role concerning the
implementation of the political and legal framework for the
implementation of such provisions : Two organic laws , which are
respectively related to the terms of the exercise of the right to present
petitions before the public authorities, as well as the conditions of the
exercise of the right to put forward legislative petitions, have entered into
force since 2016.

Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values?
Such a new form of democratic exercise which allows citizens, among
others, to present to the public authorities, and to the elected institutions,
legislative petitions and motions, is, doubtlessly, a precondition for the
consolidation and the strengthening of the representative democracy.
It should ensure the accession of the citizens and their implication in
the decision making and legislative process.
