Creating a Parallel State Structure II.: Management of New Supervisory Authorities Cemented for 9 Years

A recently adopted Act and a Bill being debated in the Parliament aim at transforming existing supervisory bodies and mechanisms over which currently the government has control in order to cement their new management, appointed by the current Prime Minister, for nine years. This means that future governments, unless having a supermajority in the Parliament required to amend cardinal acts and provisions, would be left without any influence over a wide range of areas from tobacco retail concessions to atomic energy.

Our information note, available here, explains how the creation of these entities is a part of a separate state structure that is in the making.
