Opinia prawna na temat senackiego projektu ustawy o petycjach
Legal opinion on the Senate bill on petitions (Sejm Paper No. 2135)
Languages of publication
The author of the opinion favours the Senate initiative to encompass the procedure for examination of petitions in a separate statute. The right to submit petitions, along with and the right to file proposals and complaints, are contained in the Article 63 of the Constitution. The author presents several arguments justifying the need for a comprehensive settlement of the procedure for examination of petitions in a manner separate from the procedure of handling complaints and requests regulated in the Code of Administrative Procedure. She also expresses reservations about the proposed bill, which concern the way in which the right of petition is regulated, and undue extended deadline for consideration of the petition. Moreover, she points out that the statutory list of the demands and rights to which a petition may concerns, should not be exhaustive.
