5 Review by the Government

The decision on submitting the Government bill to Parliament is taken by the Government in plenary session, prior to which any proposal with significant financial impacts is considered in the Cabinet Finance Committee. The proposal is presented to the Government by the ministry in charge of drafting.
Before a government plenary session, the matter may be discussed also in ministerial working groups, cabinet committees, informal evening meetings of the Government, and different political negotiations, in which the parliamentary groups representing the opposition may also participate.

The rapporteur in plenary session is a ministry official. Government decisions are reported on the Government website.
