#ReglasClaras (lit. #ClearRules) is a platform that brings together citizens from different sectors, institutions and social organizations in order to monitor and promote transparent and participatory legislative processes. The platform seeks to develop a parliamentary code of ethics and a lobbying law with open participatory processes. A workshop has already been held, in which citizen representatives of different organizations were discussing the base documents for both proposals. It is intended that these tools facilitate citizen participation in legislative processes and strengthen the transparency of parliamentarians through citizen monitoring.
