Parliament okays 'Cuper' law

Lawmakers on February 13 voted to keep a controversial paragraph in a law on regional elected governments that would allow the central government to challenge the decisions of lower parliaments in what it felt was the national interest. A group of MPs, saying the state has no business interfering with the decisions of other elected bodies, has vowed to challenge the law in the Constitutional Court.
