Civic Digital Participation in Legislation During the COVID-19 Crisis
Foundation for Public Participation (Sabiedrības Līdzdalības Fonds), Latvia

ABOUT: In 2020, building on robust and highly efficient civic digital participation achievements, public participation CSO MyVoice (ManaBalss) has provided high-impact digital participation services to civic society in Latvia. Civic society has substantially contributed to the legislative checks and balances in the COVID-19 emergency. Two national-level initiatives or petitions have been implemented into law: rolling back the centralized exams for the 9th grade and credit holidays for the borrowers. Multiple others are either in the parliament and government’s decision-making process or still collecting the necessary civic approval (e-signatures).
