“On 3 November, all the proposals in a generalized form will be submitted to the organizers of the public debate - the House of Representatives and the National Center of Legislation and Legal Research - for expert evaluation,” said Andrei Matelsky, Director of the National Center of Legal Information. “We see that these bills are actively discussed at dialogue platforms. The Legal Forum continues to receive input from the public. And although proposals are not many - as of yesterday there were more than 150 of them, these proposals are very specific. We can say that our citizens got involved in legislative effort and their activity is pretty high,” Andrei Matelsky said.
