In its final plenary session of 2017, the Venice Commission is expected to adopt several opinions.
Two opinions concern Poland, both requested by the Council of Europe’s Parliamentary Assembly: (1) an opinion on two draft acts to amend the National Council of the Judiciary and the Supreme Court, and recent amendments to the existing Act on the Organisation of Ordinary Courts and (2) an opinion on the Act on the Public Prosecutor’s Office.
The legal experts are also expected to adopt an opinion, requested by the Ukrainian Foreign Affairs Minister, on Ukraine’s Education law, which regulates the use of the state language and minority and other languages in education.
Another highlight will be an opinion - prepared with the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (OSCE/ODIHR) - on the legal framework governing the funding of political parties and electoral campaigns in the Republic of Moldova.
These and other items can be consulted in the agenda.
