Parliament’s September plenary session ends

The following had been decided by the end of parliament’s September plenary session:

The following had been decided by the end of parliament’s September plenary session:

Notaries and lawyers will not enjoy exclusive rights related to drawing up contracts for real estate transfers, as suggested in a draft revision to the Civil Code by the Justice Ministry.

Lawmakers green-lighted a proposal drafted by Smer MP Renáta Zmajkovičová which says that consumer lenders will be allowed to take action against delinquent clients no sooner than after the third consecutive delayed installment. This is to address situations in which borrowers have lost their real estate, which is often put up as collateral, after missing just one installment.

The MPs of the governing coalition voted to remove opposition Conservative Democrats of Slovakia (KDS) MP Pavol Minárik from the Parliamentary Committee for Culture and Media. Minárik became a new member of the Committee for Public Administration. KDH MP Pavol Abrhan has been appointed to take Minárik’s place.

MPs also rejected a revision to the Rules of Order drafted by Speaker of Parliament Pavol Paška and Deputy Speaker of the Parliament Miroslav Číž (both SMER-SD) which aimed to address the recent scandal concerning forged signatures on parliamentary attendance sheets.

MPs postponed the appointments to the Council of the Slovak Land Fund until the October session because the Cabinet failed to deliver a list of candidates. SITA
