Opposition gets the parliament to vote for European integration laws as the top priority on Thursday
“We have agreed at the consultation meeting to begin the session with the European integration laws on Thursday… My request for heads of committees is to ensure preparation of all these draft laws for consideration at the session,” Rybak said.
Later, the parliament passed the agenda for November 19-22 with 311 MPs supporting the plan and the Communist Party refraining from vote.
