Petitions in the Senate

Everyone has the right to address state authorities with requests, proposals and complaints in matters of public or common interest belonging to their field of competence (1, article 1 of the Act No. 85/1990 Coll., on petitionary right).

The Senate has decided that petitions will be handled by the Committee on Education, Science, Culture, Human Rights and Petitions. The Committee considers whether the submission fulfils all requirements prescribed by a special act.

The above mentioned Committee presents the Senate with a report on accepted petitions, their contents and way of handling. The report embodies first of all who submitted the petitions, when they arrived, what they referred to and who, when and how discussed and handled them. Unless otherwise stated by the Senate, the Committee presents the report on the preceding year at the latest on February 15.
