Only 12 percent of the entire number of draft laws submitted by the Ukrainian MPs become the actual laws; Oleksiy Koshel, the chairman of the Voters Committee of Ukraine, said that at Monday briefing in Kyiv.

‘Most unfortunately, the Ukrainian parliament beat the record among European countries – in terms of making laws. Annually, the Ukrainian lawmakers register about 1,800 bills on the average. It’s a huge figure… Most of these bills are the so-called 'low-quality legal spam'. Every second bill is negatively assessed by the Parliament’s Chief Scientific Expert Department; every third is disapproved by the Finance Ministry. Thus, Ukrainian MPs stick to the Olympic idea of participation, where taking part means more than winning,’ Koshel said.   

According to him, each year, Norwegian parliament initiates five bills on the average; Swiss does six, and Greek parliament – 13 bills. Finland registers 257, France – 337, Italy – 644 bills each year on the average.
