The extension of the state of emergency had to be approved by the National Council of the Slovak Republic. In the end, a majority of the Members present voted in favor of its extension.
Members of the National Council (NR) of the Slovak Republic on Tuesday approved the extension of the state of emergency. There were 83 deputies out of 108 present, against 25 deputies. On December 29, 2020, the government extended the state of emergency by another 40 days. The consent to the extension was the only item on the 21st meeting of the National Council of the Slovak Republic, which ended with an evening vote.
According to recently approved legislation, the extension of the state of emergency had to be approved by the National Council of the Slovak Republic. It should have done so no later than 20 days from the effective date of its extension. It’s supposed to be “Constitutional insurance”
within the division of power and the system of brakes and counterweights in the parliamentary republic.
Such insurance should also be introduced when declaring a state of emergency again.
In the proposal for the consent of the parliament, the government cabinet reminded that at the time when the decision was made to extend the state of emergency, the epidemiological situation in Slovakia remained very serious, which was evident in hospitals and other medical facilities.
‘It was thus necessary to prolong the state of emergency in order to ensure, inter alia, the retention or re-imposition of a duty to provide healthcare, the reprofiling of hospitals due to the need for other types of beds, or maintaining or amending the restriction of freedom of movement and residence by curfew or otherwise. , due to the necessary restriction of mobility and thus of social contacts, “ it is written in the proposal.
Age of cash
An emergency situation can be declared to the necessary extent and for the necessary time, for a maximum of 90 days. If it is declared due to a threat to the life and health of persons in connection with a pandemic, it may be extended for a maximum of another 40 days, even repeatedly.
Borgula pointed out that during a state of emergency, the “cache time” may return, and thus hand over large sums of cash.
“The Cash Restrictions Act stipulates that the ban on cash payments above a specified limit, ie EUR 5 000 for legal persons and EUR 15 000 for natural persons, does not apply to cash payments made or received in times of crisis, war, war state of emergency, state of emergency, emergency and emergency, “ he pointed out.
The deputy therefore recommended that the government, in the future, if it once again requests a declaration of a state of emergency, carefully consider all the pros and cons and draw attention to all nooks and crannies. “We now have 40 days to legislate the rules and actions we need to combat the coronary crisis and which could be implemented without a state of emergency.” added.
