The website (spinfo.org.mk) provides citizens and everyone interested an insight into the public information already published or submitted, to be inspired about the types of questions that they can ask the authorities, as well as the possibility of directly asking these questions through the website.
This is a new tool available online and enabling citizens, journalists and anyone interested to learn how to submit requests for free access to information, but also to compare the experiences with the use of this right, with more than 2,500 compared cases available on the website. With this new tool, citizens have the opportunity to highlight the weaknesses and best practices from the right to free access.
The Metamorphosis Foundation digitized the requests of citizens for free access to public information and these are available in the Resources section of the project website.
