Veljko Odalovic briefed the cadets on the amendments made to the manner in which MPs are elected as stipulated in the Law amending and modifying the Law on Election of Deputies adopted in 2011. The National Assembly Secretary General also informed the guests on the National Assembly’s representative, legislative and control function, adding that the National Assembly was the authority which implemented democratic control over the security sector.
