Birth of a law

What are the specifics of the urgent procedure?

The National Assembly decides on every proposal for placing acts under urgent procedure on the agenda during the determination of the agenda. If the proposal is accepted, the bill shall be included in the agenda for the session, if it is not accepted, the bill remains in assembly procedure and is reviewed by regular procedure.
Bills which regulate defence and security issues may be placed on the agenda of a session of the National Assembly even if submitted on the date the sitting is held, two hours before the scheduled beginning of the sitting, and where the proposer is the Government, a bill may be placed on the agenda even if submitted during the sitting of the National Assembly, provided the sitting is being attended by a majority of all MPs..
An amendment to a bill that is discussed by urgent procedure can be submitted until the beginning of the discussion in principle on the bill, at the latest.
