Connecting citizens and Parliament
What is it?
 A platform for direct communication between
parliamentarians and citizens
 It’s not the first one, but it is the first one that is
working
Why did we make it?
 The legislative process in Bosnia and Herzegovina is pretty
much a closed process (over 40% percent of laws are adopted
through urgent procedure and no public consultations are held)
 Citizens don’t particularly understand policy issues of specific
laws and rely on (often) biased media reporting
 The MPs themselves don’t have a platform to express their
opinions in regards to legislature
 Most of the communication between citizens and MPs is not in
any way related to what parliamentarians jobs are (adopting
legislation)
 Citizens need to be more educated about the legislative process
and need to have more influence on it
What does it do?
 It summarizes the proposals of the laws in a way that
people can understand them (short and longer summary is
available)
 It makes the entire text of the proposal available for
download
 It identifies key policy issues of the proposals and presents
them in an understandable way
 It sets a set of predefined questions for every law
Where does it do it?
State parliament
Entity parliament
One (out of nine) cantonal
parliaments
What can YOU do with it?
 Vote on every law proposal currently in procedure
 Vote on specific policy issues in the law proposals
 Submit questions to the parlamentarians in regards to
specific laws
 Submit questions to the parlamentarians on any topic that
is connected with their political life
 Start petitions and submit initiatives for law changes
What can MPs do with it?
 Use it as a tool to see what is the public opinion on
specific laws
 Use it as a tool to promote their positions on different
topic
 Use it as a resource in terms of preparing for parliament
sessions (sometimes it is not possible to read through all
the materials, so we do it for them)
 Use it as a source for initiatives in the parliament
The Results
 over 600.000 visits from October 2015
 over 350 laws analyzed
 over 7.000 questions asked
 over 250.000 votes cast
 over 80 parliamentarians actively using the platform
 MPs from both the governing and opposition parties using the platform
 Over 14.000 followers on social media
 social media posts have been seen over 3 million times
 the only place on BH web where you can find all law proposals from
the last year in one place
Why does it work?
 Easy to use
 Parliamentarians don’t need a new login and password to answer questions, the
questions come directly to their emails
 Parliamentarians can answer with only one click
 User registration is easy (only one form, or just one click for registration via social
media)
 Non-biased (the platform does’t give any stances on specific
issues, it just presents them as they are presented in the law)
 To the point (the administration doesn’t allow questions that are not
related to parliamentarians public life)
 New features are implemented constantly (quizzes that make it easier
for citizens to vote on specific issues is the newest one)
Where do we go from here?
 Get more MPs to become involved (at least 60% of all MPs in the
parliaments – currently around 35%)
 Increase our social media presence even more
 Set up platforms for every cantonal parliament in Bosnia and
Herzegovina (9 more)
 Work towards becoming a decisive factor in law-making and adopting
Thank you for your
attention!
