124th Plenary session of the Venice Commission of the Council of Europe and 30th anniversary ceremony

08/10/2020 - 09/10/2020

Due to the worsening sanitary conditions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ceremony devoted to the 30th anniversary of the Venice Commission has been postponed to a later date. The 124th Plenary Session therefore took place exclusively on-line.

The Commission adopted the draft opinions on current constitutional reforms in Iceland and Malta, on functioning of the judiciary in Georgia and Ukraine, on bar associations in Turkey, on freedom of assembly in Kosovo and freedom of religion in Uzbekistan.

In addition, the Commission adopted the draft Reports on criminal liability for peaceful calls for radical constitutional change; on measures taken in the EU member States as a result of the Covid-19 crisis and on election dispute resolution. The revised Guidelines on Referendums and the Report on electoral law and electoral administration in Europe were also on the agenda.
