    On March 3, the Chamber of Deputies approved a reform of the Law on Access to Public Information that would oblige Congress, the Public Prosecutor’s Office, the Constitutional Court, the Electoral Service and the Central Bank to “abide by the principle of transparency in public service”. At the request of citizens, the National Congress would need to divulge data relating to its staff, salaries, allowances, contracted services, voting, and the attendance of legislators at certain meetings. The bill has now been passed to the Senate where it will continue to be assessed.
