MINSK, 19 September (BelTA) – The forthcoming session of the parliament should make a tangible contribution to the enabling of constitutional changes, BelTA learned from Chairman of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly of Belarus Vladimir Andreichenko at a session of the Council of the House of Representatives.
Vladimir Andreichenko said: “We have gathered ahead of the opening of another, ninth session of the House of Representatives. The parliament will switch to a new working routine once the session begins. The session period will last for virtually one year. It will allow more systemically and faster pass bills, which are important for the country and people. There are about 40 bills in the House of Representatives now. We are adding 20 of them to the work schedule. Virtually all these bills have been fully prepared for consideration of the parliament. In other words, we are keeping up with the approved schedule for now. But we have to work faster.”
First and foremost, the forthcoming session has to make a tangible contribution to the enabling of constitutional changes. “I'd like to stress that we have to pass the key laws of this block that regulate the operation of government agencies, the development of the political party system of the country and the civil society by the end of the year. The head of state has already hosted conferences to discuss some of the laws. More conferences to discuss other laws will be held soon. And we want members of the parliament involved in the polishing of these documents as much as possible,” the speaker of the lower chamber of the Belarusian parliament noted.
