Electronic attendance for MPs rejected

MPs will not have to undergo electronic registration to prove their attendance in Parliament after KDH vice-chairman Daniel Lipšic's amendment was rejected on July 1.

MPs will not have to undergo electronic registration to prove their attendance in Parliament after KDH vice-chairman Daniel Lipšic's amendment was rejected on July 1.

His proposal would have required MPs to use electronic cards twice a day, before and after 2 p.m, the TASR newswire wrote.

An amendment concerning MPs' attendance in Parliament submitted by Speaker of Parliament Pavol Paška and MP Miroslav Cíž (both Smer-SD) was moved to its second reading last week. This proposal states that signatures on the attendance sheets should be checked by specially selected MPs.

On other issues, Independent MP Peter Gabura's proposal to increase job protection and add responsibilities for teachers was also rejected. Also unsuccessful was Gabura's amendment to the Labour Code that would have introduced bonuses for work done on Saturdays (time and a half) and Sundays and holidays (double time) if a free weekday isn't provided in compensation.
