Parent Pension Bill Should be Tied to Cabinet No-Confidence Vote, Says Reform Party MP
Head of the ruling Reform Party's faction in Parliament, Kristen Michal, said IRL is disrupting the assembly's work by submitting 1,000 amendments to the pension for parents reform, and a no-confidence vote should be held instead.
Michal told uudised.err.ee on Wednesday it would take a month to debate the 1,000 proposals to the bill and other important bills would have to delayed.
He said a no-confidence vote would replace the need to vote on each of the 1,000 amendments.
Such a move was last used in 2009 when a no-confidence vote took place, instead of debates on a supplementary budget.
The bill itself was one of the cornerstones of the previous IRL-Reform Party government, and the new Cabinet has been pushing for a watered-down version, which would postpone pension payments to parents by three years.
