In cooperation with the Constitutional Council of the Republic of Kazakhstan, the IRZ organised a working visit on the subject of “legislative procedures and the legal monitoring of normative acts” in the German Bundestag and Bundesrat. Those taking part in the event included Igor Rogov, Chairman of the Constitutional Council, and the Deputy Head of the Presidential Administration, Talgat Donakov.
A lively and informative discussion took place at the Bundesrat with head of department Dr. Georg Kleemann, Deputy Secretary General of the Bundesrat and Director of the Mediation Committee of the German Bundestag and Bundesrat. The Kazakh partners reported on the organisation and tasks of the Parliament of the Republic of Kazakhstan and on the responsibilities of the Constitutional Council.
At the German Bundestag, Dr. Birgit Reese, a speaker specialising in “Constitution and Administration” for the Administration of the German Bundestag, started by presenting the tasks and committees of the German Bundestag. She then spoke about monitoring legislation and the legal monitoring of acts. The delegation took the opportunity to ask plenty of questions and outline comparisons with the legislative process in the Parliament of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
The successful partnership with the Constitutional Council and the Presidential Administration of the Republic of Kazakhstan will continue next year. A joint event is already planned for the spring.
