Description

What is the public problem that the commitment will address?
This is about strengthening access to information detained by the public
administration, by the elected institutions as well as the organizations with
public service missions, given that this is a fundamental human right which
is guaranteed by the Moroccan Constitution. Right now, there aren’t any
regulatory provisions as per defining which information are to be
published.
The House of Representatives publishes the following information on the
web site:
http://www.chambredesrepresentants.ma/fr/annuaire-parlementaire.
It is worth noting that the majority of these data are not complete.
Consequently, the civil society organizations do encounter some difficulties
when it comes to finding out such information.

What does the commitment consist of?
Voluntarist dissemination and publication of information, data and
documents produced by the House of representatives, namely debates
which take place in plenary sessions as well throughout the committees’
meetings, the reports of the parliamentary fact finding committees, the
reports of the information missions, the reports of the thematic groups and
the reports of the public policy evaluation.
Given that by virtue of the law, a national committee is set up to the head of
Government’s office, and taking into consideration the separation of
powers’ principle, a committee in charge of the implementation of the
constitutional and legislative provisions regarding the right to access
information, shall be set up to report to the Speaker of the House of
Representatives.
In a similar vein, it makes a triumphant statement about opening the archive
of the House of Representatives to the public use, and to place the digital
documents on line (more than a million six hundred thousand documents
in open data) ; documents related to the determining moments of the
national political and parliamentary life, have been published in the past,
but aren’t any more accessible nowadays since the House of Representatives
is the unique custodian of the document library.

How shall the commitment contribute to solving the public problem?
This pertains to opening, to the public, many important chapters of the
political history of the country.

Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values?
Respecting and making this universal right respected, should guarantee
equality to all in terms of having access to information. It is considered as
an indispensable condition for transparency and good governance.
