Structure of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Union of Belarus and Russia may be changed due to implementation of 28 union programs

The current structure of the Parliamentary Assembly will be reviewed by a relevant working group. Such proposal was made by the Chairman of the State Duma Vyacheslav Volodin at the 61st session of the Parliamentary Assembly

“We adopted the structure of the Parliamentary Assembly many years ago. It hasn't changed. The commissions usually review a very wide range of issues, sometimes absolutely different. That affects effective work,” said Vyacheslav Volodin Volodin Vyacheslav Victorovich Volodin

In this regard, he proposed to create a working group that would be chaired by the Chairman of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly of the Republic of Belarus Vladimir Andreichenko.

The working group should review the structure of the Parliamentary Assembly “to enhance its effectiveness to address the challenges facing the Union State,” explained Vyacheslav Volodin.

He recalled that to implement the adopted 28 union programs, it would be necessary to adopt about 400 legislative acts.

According to him, the working group would study the proposals of the Deputy Chairmen of the Parliamentary Assembly and the heads of relevant commissions.

“It would be right if the Deputy Chairmen of the Parliamentary Assembly have additional responsibilities and our legislative assembly is final results-oriented,” said Vyacheslav Volodin.
