1 DRAFT law No. 379/X changes the law No. 45/2006 of 25 August, amending Law No. 7/93, of 1 March (members ' Statute) explanatory memorandum to guarantee independence in the exercise of the mandate of members of Parliament is an essential condition for the qualification of Portuguese democracy. Transparency is a value inherent in the genetic code of democratic parliaments. One of the key elements in establishing this guarantee and reiterate these conditions is the registration of interests, created in the Assembly of the Republic. Thus, 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. Indeed, the requirement of registration functions and public or private activities and the remaining registration obligations serve to prevent and identify possible conflicts of interest.
