MINSK, 24 January (BelTA) – MPs need to use their right of legislative initiative more actively, Chairman of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly of Belarus Vladimir Andreichenko said at a meeting of the Council of the House of Representatives, BelTA has learned.
“I would like to draw your attention to the fact that members of the House of Representatives are not fully using the potential of legislative initiative. They did a rather good job in this regard last year when they initiated six bills. This is a very good figure, it is nearly the highest figure in recent years. We would like you to come at least close to this figure this year,” said Vladimir Andreichenko.
The speaker recalled that a legislative plan for 2023 was approved by a presidential decree. “I say this in order to encourage all deputies to get actively involved in the development of these bills, submit legislative proposals and promote them at all levels,” the chairman of the House of Representatives emphasized.
