Role of the Parliament of Montenegro in fight against corruption

06. Jan. 2017. in publications

Parliament is one of the key pillars for the efficient fight against corruption, not only as a main legislative body, as a authority that monitors the implementation of its adopted laws, because without a proper implementation, laws remain only dead letter on the paper. Even though Montenegrin Parliament is enabled, through its control mechanisms to monitor implementation of the adopted laws, these mechanisms are not sufficiently exploited, especially in the area of fight against corruption. The Parliament of Montenegro is one of the main bearers of implementation of the Innovated Action Plan for the Fight against Corruption and Organized Crime (2008-2010). As a main characteristic of its functioning in last year, we can point out extremely vigorous legislative activity, when it comes to the laws which regulate questions of corruption and corruptive actions.
