Moreover, the ministry stopped using its old website where legal regulations had been published, the SITA newswire reported.

The eLegislation system offers effective tools to create new legislation and to administer the legislative process, said the Justice Ministry’s spokesperson, Peter Bubla. The public, entrepreneurs, state administration and judicial bodies will be able to effectively be involved in the process, he added. 

In addition, the system of submitting comments on draft laws should be better arranged. This means that amendments will be published in a way so that it is clear how they will impact the currently valid laws. Users will also be able to check how the new legislation will affect other relevant documents by electronic code, SITA wrote. 

In order to inform the public about planned draft laws before they are submitted for interdepartmental review, there shall be information about the prepared legislative proposals in the event they will have a more significant impact. The submitters will have to briefly describe the basic aims and purpose of the planned law, to evaluate the current situation and set the expected date of starting the review process. Anyone will be able to comment on this information, though it will not be viewed as an ordinary review, SITA reported.
