From today, parliamentary committees can hold their official meetings remotely. The provisionally valid provisions of the Parliament's Rules of Procedure on remote meetings will apply until the end of May.
During the corona epidemic, the committees have held a large number of informal remote meetings in which experts have been consulted and a preparatory discussions have taken place. However, decision-making has required physical assembly.
The recommendation to the committees on formal remote meetings is that, in addition to urgent and other necessary matters, only undisputed matters would be taken into decisive reading.
Parliament decided on the application of the provisions last Friday on the basis of a proposal from the Speaker's Council and a committee report from the Constitutional Law Committee.
