Opinia prawna w sprawie pojęcia „forma pisemna” w odniesieniu do przepisów zawartych w regulaminie Sejmu
Legal opinion on the meaning of the term “in writing” in relation to the Standing Orders of the Sejm
Languages of publication
In accordance with Article 193 of the Standing Orders of the Sejm, the answer to an interpellation is to be given in writing. The term in question is, in the parliamentary practice, understood explicitly. It considers it as a “paper form” of a document, which is also supported by established practice of the Sejm in this respect.. Even if the Standing Orders do not contain a legal definition of the term “in writing”, the classification allowing – in the analyzed case – for the use of an electronic version would be of a “projective” nature and differ from the current understanding of the rules of the Sejm. The proposal for a relevant amendment of the Standing Orders of the Sejm, explicitly guaranteeing accessibility of an electronic document, is justifiable.
