"We'll negotiate until the debate ends and until we vote on the government programme. There won't be any time limits on the individual speeches of MPs either," said Hrušovský, specifying that the debate would continue until 19:00 on Thursday and until 16:00 on Monday. MPs also decided that when the parliamentary session finishes, another one will follow directly afterwards. It will be dedicated to changes in the General Administration Act and restrictions on the immunity of MPs and the judiciary.
