Consultation is part of the Policy Making Process and is a participatory tool which enables single citizens or groups of citizens to provide comments, opinions and suggestions to the Government and administrations which are useful for taking decisions or adopting measures. Channels used for consultation include meetings with stakeholders, written submissions, and on-line mediums.
On-line consultations are conducted through the public consultations website. This is a dedicated platform that is used to encourage the general public, civil society organisations, trade unions, business organisations, political parties, governmental institutions, and all other interested parties to contribute to the process of policy design and formulation by serving as a central point of contact for public consultation.
On-line consultations on Open Government initiatives will be made through the dedicated portal.
