Parliament once again discusses unification of offices

On September 11 Parliament restarted discussions on unifying the Prosecutor General's Office and the Ministry of Justice. This matter was originally raised during the spring session. According to the proposal under discussion, the Prosecutor General’s Office will become a department of the Ministry of Justice, and the head of the unified entity will be the Justice Minister.

The opposition has criticized the project, saying that there would be less public control over a united entity. On September 9 it was decided that the commission will gather once more before discussing the project as a result of the comments made by the opposition and other positions which have been presented.
