Macau (MNA) – The Macau SAR Government pledged to settle 12 legislative proposals and bills within the current year, according to an official statement on Friday from the Office of the Secretary for Administration and Justice.
In the announcement, the Office also revealed the works developed by the government over the past three years.
The government had submitted five of the six proposed bills to the Legislative Assembly (AL) in 2015, explaining that the reason for not submitting one of the bills – the Regional legal co-operation bill – owed to the necessity to conduct deeper studies on the legal differences between relevant jurisdictions.
In 2016, the government had completed six of eight bills targeted for internal legislative procedures, with five of them have been sent to the AL for deliberation. For 2017, the government handed in four of five proposed bills to the AL.
Apart from submitting the scheduled legislative proposals to the AL for deliberation, the government said it also submitted bills ruling on matters of significant public concern.
In total, the government had submitted 13 proposals and bills to the AL in 2015, 15 in 2016 and 12 in 2017.
