MPs Return to Parliament on Monday

MPs return to work on Monday at the Parliament of the Republic of Macedonia, almost a month and a half before the local elections. On Monday, according to the announcements from the coordinators of the parliamentary groups, they are expected to have a meeting with PS Talat Xhaferi and the Parliament VPs, after which it will be known how the working week of the MPs will continue. Given the election, some MPs believe that activities will be reduced and that next month’s discussions will be in the context of local elections. The first week of the next parliamentary session is likely to be marked by committee hearings. After the coordination, it will be known when and if a continuation of one of the parliamentary sessions would be convened. The parliamentary website lists eight sessions from 2021 as unfinished, five of which were scheduled from May to July. A new session is announced for mid-September, while new materials received this month are the Draft Law on Amendments to the Law on Innovation Activity, the Draft Law on the Academy for Judges and Public Prosecutors, the Draft Law on Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances, Draft-law on Drugs, Draft-law on Civil Procedure and Draft-law on Payment of Monetary Compensation to Victims of Crimes of Violence.
