Bulgaria’s parliament said that it is suspending all its regular sittings while the country is in a state of emergency over the spread of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the country.
During this period, the parliament will hold sittings only to pass legislation related to the state of emergency, while parliamentary scrutiny will be conducted in writing, the national assembly said in a statement on Thursday.
The proposal was supported by 115 members of the 240-seat parliament, as 65 members of the opposition Socialist party opposed it.
Bulgaria declared a one-month state of emergency on March 13.
