The members of the 39th National Assembly (NA) will have at their disposal only 5 seconds to vote. Their predecessors from the previous parliaments had 3 minutes. The time for voting is being shortened in order to put an end once and for all to the wrong practice of voting with a pack of other MPs` cards, Prof. Ognian Gerdzhikov explained.

Sanctions are to be envisaged for MPs who are missing from the sittings.
