Opinia prawna w sprawie zgodności z Konstytucją możliwości odrzucenia projektu ustawy podczas pierwszego czytania
Legal opinion on the constitutionality of the possibility of rejection of a bill during the first reading
Languages of publication
The author of the opinion supports a dominant position among Polish constitutional lawyers, according to which rejection of bill during the first reading is constitutionally acceptable. He shows that the possibility of rejection of bills during the first reading is an institution firmly rooted in the Polish parliamentary tradition. Removing it would cause extension of the work on bills, because of a likely “ritualization” of three readings. The author claims that such situation would lead to a weakening of the role and importance of the institution of readings of bills.
