Belarusian parliament to read over 30 bills during autumn session

MINSK, 30 September (BelTA) – Members of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly are preparing over 30 bills to be read during the autumn session of the parliament, BelTA learned from Valentin Semenyako, Chairman of the State Building, Local Self-Government, and Regulations Commission of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly of Belarus.

According to the source, 43 bills are now in the House of Representatives. Of them 33 bills are on the draft work schedule of the session. As many as 26 items are on the agenda of the session of the Council of the House of Representatives, including 14 bills that will be given the second reading. These are rather quality documents, which have been thoroughly prepared and are ready for reading.

A considerable number of bills focus on regulating economy, scientific, technical, and innovative activities. In line with the head of state's instructions the parliament has done rather serious work to prepare the draft Code on Administrative Offenses and the draft Procedural Law Code for Administrative Offenses. Work on these documents is nearly finished. Sessions of the relevant commission are held virtually every day to discuss all points of view. “We hope the work will be finished soon and we will get quality drafts,” the MP noted.

Valentin Semenyako stressed that the agenda of the autumn session is rather flexible. It can be expanded with additional items, primarily with bills as soon as they are ready. “In particular, we expect that a new revision of the Education Code will be brought in to the parliament,” he said.
