Question mark over conflict-of-interest law

SEVERAL versions of the long-expected conflict-of-interests law are to be discussed in parliament after representatives of political parties participating at the preparation of the draft failed to agree on a unified stance.

It remains unclear, however, how many versions will be forwarded for parliamentary discussion and the fate of the draft is also uncertain.

Approving a strict conflict-of-interests law that would introduce greater public control of the country's MPs and other officials was among the priorities of the cabinet and opposition parties.

But NGOs and anticorruption watchdogs are cautious about the future of the draft because a similar proposal was rejected by parliament in the past, despite the declared support of parliamentary parties.
