Open Raadsinformatie API docs
Open Raadsinformatie (ORI) aims to make governmental decision making more transparent by aggregating and standardizing meeting & decision data. Currently, the API includes data from more than 110 municipalities (gemeenten) and 5 provinces.

This is an ElasticSearch endpoint. Elastic has powerful full-text search capabilities.
The repo for this API can be found here. Read the Elastic v7.0 docs for more information. Only specific Elastic features (endpoints) are publicly available. This is to prevent (malicious or accidental) write / remove commands.
