The amendments to the law "On State Youth Policy" were considered during the meeting of the Committee on Public Associations, Sport, Information and Youth Policy. The author of the legislative initiative, President Vadim Krasnoselsky, proposed the establishment of youth election commissions under the CEC and territorial election commissions. The law-in-draft is aimed at increasing the legal culture and electoral activity of young citizens, and also aims to strengthen the confidence of young people in power.
Currently, the Central Election Commission is developing a youth electoral concept. According to Secretary of the CEC Galina Shlenskova, a number of activities are planned in this direction, including this year. The nearest of them is an essay competition on the topic "If I became President" - will pass among schoolchildren. And on March 30, representatives of the CEC planned to hold Day of the young voter. In turn, the creation of youth election commissions will help young people to see and understand how election commissions of all levels work.
The deputies of the Committee supported the proposal of the President and recommended that the Supreme Council pass the law-in-draft in two readings at once.
In the second reading, parliamentarians reviewed the law-in-draft "On Non-Profit Organizations." The legislative initiative was introduced in the previous convocation of the Supreme Council and was actively discussed at various venues. As the head of the profile committee Igor Buga noted, the law-in-draft determines the legal basis for the activities of NGOs, in particular, those that are financed from foreign sources. Therefore, first of all, the legislator should take into account the interests of the security of state policy.
Consideration of the law-in-draft "On non-profit organizations" in the second reading is scheduled in the plenary session on February 14.
