Over seventy members of the UK Open Government Civil Society Network, including Involve, have written to political parties calling on them to commit to open government and the Open Government Partnership. The joint letter calls on political parties to:

1. State their commitment to the open government principles of transparency, participation and accountability in your party manifesto, and outline the open government reforms that you will introduce.
2. Commit to working to further the impact of Open Government Partnership domestically and internationally.
3. Commit to implementing, with the UK Open Government Network, an open and collaborative process for developing the UK’s third Open Government Partnership National Action Plan.
