Havana, Dec 6 (RHC) The secretary of the National Assembly of People's Power (ANPP), Homero Acosta, said Tuesday that the 9th Legislature of the supreme body, which ends on December 14 with its tenth regular session, will be one of the most fruitful in the legislative field.


In a press conference, he recalled that it includes the approval of 30 laws, including those of the State Budget.


Acosta referred to the intense work program that the 605 deputies of the Parliament will have from Sunday 11 when they will analyze in commissions issues of great importance for the country and the population.


Among the novelties, he mentioned the beginning of a process of digitalization of the Assembly itself, as each seat will have a tablet, and equipment donated by Viet Nam.


"This will be an essential tool that will allow having all the necessary documents at hand, from laws to rulings and their application status," he said before explaining the main activities or moments of the sessions at the Havana Convention Palace.
