  • Readers may have noticed that Parliament has been setting up a number of working groups, to study and review a number of draft laws to be discussed in its spring and autumn sessions. These laws are meant to bring in major changes in our country. This is an appropriate time to usher in such radical reforms as the nation celebrates the 20th anniversary of the democratic revolution. It will be a busy year for MPs as they grapple with amending the Constitution, the Law on Election and other laws regulating economic matters and with passing new laws as well. It is good that 2010 is not an election year as MPs can approach their task without succumbing to any political compulsion.
