Following the discussion in this thread - Bug on the submission website > Help needed, I propose we should discuss what do we think about government submitting to the index under this topic here.
In my opinion, we can’t really ignore government and should allow the to submit. I think it will help us to achieve the goal of having a civil discourse between government and civil society. In addition, we can’t always know who are government officials and we don’t have a way to prevent them from submitting to the index.
I think that we do need to encourage people to comment on government submissions and to monitor them. The new review system of topical reviewers should assist to also reduce the bias of submissions for government. since it looks at all datasets, not on a country.
