1 DRAFT law No. 272/X (PS) draft law on amendment to law No. 7/93, of 1 March (members ' Statute explanatory memorandum this legislative initiative aims to correct some aspects of the system of incompatibilities and impediments of deputies to Parliament, as well as strengthen the mechanisms that ensure the transparency of the exercise of the mandate of Mr. It is a principle of good legislation that tells us that clarity and rigour in the formulation of the legal precepts promotes the effective enforcement of the rules and makes your ballot by citizens. So, in terms of incompatibility, provided for in article 20, updates the legal enumeration and clarify-if doubts about holding municipal posts. As for impediments, introduces a new, concerning the exercise of non-management positions in certain public bodies. In another step, the aim is to clarify some points related to the problem of registration of interests, matrix element of transparency and accountability in the exercise of parliamentary functions and politics. On your current formulation, the registration of interest suffers from confusion originating between incompatibilities and impediments. Confusion marked the last revision of the Statute for members operated by law No. 3/2001, of 23 February, to have deleted paragraph 2 of art. 26 the item "and any acts that may provide financial income or conflicts of interest". Indeed, the requirement of registration functions and public or private activities and the remaining registration obligations do not serve to determine the existence or non-existence of any 2 incompatibilities, but only to prevent and identify possible conflicts of interest. The register of interests is intended to give visibility and transparency to acts and activities allowed by law but which, because of your nature, may, if not properly made and advertised, weaken the independent and free exercise of the mandate. Instead, the incompatibilities assess themselves objectively in the light of the law and are prohibited by it, and is not, therefore, liable to any prior registration. The incompatibilities must therefore be only subject to a statement, signed under rules of engagement, no any incompatibilities provided for in law. Expands the list of activities and acts subject to the registration obligation. It becomes, therefore, compulsory of the activities carried out in the last three years and the details of that will continue to be exercised in overlapping with parliamentary mandate. Bind to the concept of preventing and relevant interest other interests beyond that concern the financial aspects. In this way, the application should, in particular, be made mention of the participation of representatives in committees or working groups or to participate in professional or representative associations of interest. Accordingly, the undersigned Members of the parliamentary group of the PS feature the following: SINGLE-ARTICLE draft law AMENDMENT to the STATUTE for MEMBERS of The articles 20, 21 and 26 of the members ' Statute, adopted by law No. 73/93, of 1 March, as amended by laws Nos. 24/95, of 18 August, no. 55/98, of 18 August; No. 8/99, of 10 February; No. 45/99, of 16 June; No. 3/2001, of 23 February (Rectification Declaration No. 9/2001, published in the Diário da República, i. grade-A, paragraph 61, of 13 March) and no. 24/2003, of July 4, shall be replaced by the following: article 20 3 1 Incompatibilities.
