Legal opinion on the acceptability of paying lump sum to cover costs related to the functioning of a deputy’s office such as the so-called mobile point for encounters with electors
Languages of publication
The author claims that there are no legal obstacles for a Deputy to incidentally fulfill his duties out-of-parliament by using, for this purpose, vehicles such as a bus. However, that sort of activity hast to stay within the limits of exercising a parliamentary mandate and, thus, stay within the scope of functioning of a Deputy’s office. As the Marshal’s of the Sejm Order No. 8 states, an enumeration of probable expenses which may be covered in lump sum to cover costs related to the functioning of a Deputy’s office, is only of an exemplary character. Such sort of costs might be covered from the above-mentioned source only when they concern “Deputy’s transport”. The author underlines that a Deputy does not have an obligation to use a bus which is a property of Deputy’s office. The Deputy may also use a vehicle provided for use by volunteers or by a non-governmental organization. That kind of activity ought to stay within limits of exercising of the mandate of a Deputy and ought not to be used for the purposes of sponsorship.
