LESS bureaucracy is the aim of the eGovernment Act passed by the Slovak parliament, which President Ivan Gašparovič signed into law, the SITA newswire reported on September 23.

The law obliges all state bodies to accept and respond to citizens’ requests and motions electronically. A citizen should also be able to receive official documents in his or her personal electronic mailbox, the SITA newswire reported.

The state also will not request data from citizens that it already has at its disposal, and a central portal of state administration will work as a unified source of information for the state administration services.

The law becomes effective as of November 1, 2013.
