ata_maliTIRANA – The Parliament will convene in session to pass two draft decisions that will pave the way to establish ad hoc commissions, which will carry out the Vetting process of Albanian judges and prosecutors, on Monday at 18:30, ATA reports.

Draft decisions plan to determine parliamentary procedures in the functioning of ad hoc committees and implementation of the voting process for 27 members of Vetting bodies as well as the creation and composition of the ad hoc commission on the verification of candidates of revaluation institutions.

These two issues are foreseen in the agenda of the session, summoned by the Speaker of the Parliament, Ilir Meta.

The Ombudsman addressed the updated lists of candidate members of Vetting bodies to the Parliament brought by the International Monitoring Operation (IMO). According to the law “on the revaluation of judges and prosecutors,” the Ombudsman immediately passed the updated list to the Parliament on Friday.

Socialist Party MP, Vasilika Hysi said that the development of Monday’s session could not be foreseen, if the opposition is boycotting, in a press statement on Sunday. According to MP Hysi voting of Vetting Regulation Commissions requires a simple majority.

While Democratic Party MPs warned their boycott of the session, maintaining the demand of a caretaker government.
