MINSK, 14 March (BelTA) – About 60 more laws should be brought into line with the Constitution by the end of the year, member of the Standing Commission on Health, Physical Culture, Family and Youth Policy Igor Zavalei told reporters, BelTA has learned.
“The seventh convocation of the House of Representatives has an honorable, but at the same time responsible task. By the end of 2023 our convocation needs to bring all legislative acts into line with the updated Constitution before our tenure expires. This work is in full swing. About 33 laws out of 90 have been harmonized, work is underway on the rest. Some of them have already passed the first reading, some are being prepared for the second reading. Of course, the key laws have been developed and adopted this year,” said Igor Zavalei.
The first of them is the law “On the Belarusian People's Congress”. “By now, this bill has already been signed into law by the president and there is a clear understanding of how it will work, what it will regulate, what powers it will have. The Belarusian People's Congress will convene in a new status within 60 days after the 2024 elections. This is not just an advisory body, but a body that will set the country's development trends. The second most important law is the law “On public associations and political parties”. It has already been developed and adopted. The situation is changing, so is the information landscape. Today we are already prepared for an active involvement of political parties in the country's life,” the MP said.
“Colossal work has been done. Today the deputies will have to bring about 60 more laws into line with the Constitution before the end of their term,” Igor Zavalei stated.
