A number of relevant bills were adopted by the lower house of the Parliament of Turkmenistan - the Mejlis.
In particular, the deputies considered and adopted the draft laws of Turkmenistan “On e-government” and “On dog breeding and cynological activities”.
During the discussion of the draft law "On e-government", it was emphasized that the document establishes the procedure for the operation of e-government and was developed in order to implement the Concept for the Development of the Digital Economy in Turkmenistan for 2019-2025. The parliamentarians noted that the use of digital technologies will increase the transparency of the activities of public authorities and make them more accessible to citizens.
During the discussion of the draft law “On dog breeding and cynological activities”, it was noted that in recent years, a lot of work has been done in Turkmenistan to preserve the gene pool of the Turkmen Alabays, which, along with the Akhal-Teke horses, are the historical and cultural heritage of the Turkmen people. The deputies emphasized that the bill defines the legal, economic and organizational basis for the development of dog breeding and cynological activities, and also creates conditions for regulating relations arising from the breeding and use of dogs.
During the meeting of the Mejlis, draft laws on introducing amendments and additions to the current legislation were also considered and adopted.
According to the law, the draft normative legal acts adopted by the Mejlis will now go to the upper house of the Turkmen parliament Khalk Maslakhaty (People's Council), after which they will be sent for signature to the President of Turkmenistan.
