A task force of the Parliament’s Standing Committee on Compliance organized workshops and open discussions on constitutional amendments in Yusunbulag soum of Govi-Altai Province on August 4.
Over 100 officials from the local citizen’s representative councils and government offices of the province’s 11 soums attended a workshop held in Yusunbulag soum to learn more about the proposed amendments to the Constitution from the task force. Some 176 soum residents participated in the discussion and 128 of them took part in a survey regarding the constitutional amendments.
Resident B.Chandag said that the new Constitution should take effect on January 1, 2018 as he believes that Parliament needs to implement its new mandate as soon as possible to address public interest issues by creating temporary committees. He noted that according to the proposed amendments to the Constitution, the new amended Constitution will take effect on July 1, 2020, and added that addressing numerous challenges facing the nation’s socioeconomics will take significant time.
