Parliament has finally approved the Right to Information (RTI) Bill after two decades.

The Bill which was passed after its third reading on Tuesday, March 26, will now await Presidential assent to be fully recognised as law. The law will, however, be implemented at the beginning of 2020.

The RTI law will provide for the operationalisation of the constitutional right to information held by the public and some private institutions, subject to exemptions that are necessary and consistent with the protection of public interest in a democratic society.

The GEA hopes that the passage of the RTI Bill will foster a culture of transparency and accountability that is needed for effective operation of the public and private sectors of the economy in general.
