Status quo or problem addressed by the commitment: Public inclusion in the policy creating and law drafting processes has not been on a satisfactory level yet. Though established in 2009, the Single National Electronic Regulation Register has not been sufficiently applied in on-line consultations on draft laws. The minimal consultation period on draft laws has not been respected with all draft laws and it is significantly shorter in respect of the standards set up in the EU countries and in the region. The public has no insight in the effects of the consultation process and no summarized feedback information are available from the conducted consultation process. Main objective: Affirmation and advancement of already established practices for participatory policy making supported by the government and civil sector. Brief description of commitment: Relation strengthening between the Government and civil sector is the key principle for good government and it is a necessary investment in quality policy creating process. OPG challenge addressed by the commitment: Measures set up in this priority contribute for improved public services and increased public integrity. Reference to the global objectives of sustainable development: Reference to the Objective 16. “Peace, justice and strong institutions”
Target 16.7: Ensuring representative decision making at all levels, to address the issues, based on involvement and participation of all stakeholders The measures of this commitment contribute for more quality decision making by the policy creators, based on consultations with all stakeholders. Ambition: This commitment is expected to increase the government accountability and openness in a two-year period through the process improvement and conducting consultations with the public:
- In the preparation process of ex ante and ex post regulation impact assessment through preparation and publication of Annual Report of conducted consultations,
- Sharing results provided by independent non-government organization’s monitoring of the Government institutions’ openness in policy making processes and law drafting
- Extending the consultation deadline with stakeholders in the report preparation process for the regulation impact assessment and law drafting
- Publication of information from held sessions of the Government on determined law proposals, made decisions and other measures
Publication of basic data on civil organizations and business subjects on the website of the Central Register of RM
