Private and religious schools: Mandatory disclosure of information and mandatory publication of contracts
The right of access to information is a fundamental constitutional right without which the existence of a genuine democratic system is impossible. It enables citizens to form an opinion about the actions of politicians and public officials, about the activities of the authorities and about the state of society, the state or the municipality. Timely access to truthful and complete information is a necessary condition for citizens' decision-making in elections to be meaningful. Only informed citizens can make truly free decisions and control the activities of public authorities or the use of public funds. Access to information also contributes to the good and responsible functioning of public administration, reduces the risk of corruption, and strengthens citizens' trust in the state and its institutions.
