The Parliament introduced voting by roll call in local councils

The deputies ensured transparent voting in local councils and public control over voting of every deputy.

Approval of the draft law will enhance personal responsibility of deputies and improve the quality of local self-government functioning. Decisions of local councils shall be approved by open voting by roll call, except for cases, for which secret voting is provided by the legislation in force (such as selection of candidates for certain posts in a council, or censure vote).
