The government also today adopted a response to the amendments to the constitutional review initiative on restrictions on movement. In view of the reduction in the number of infected persons, the release of certain other measures is also followed by mitigations in restriction or by the extension of justified exceptions.
The measures that remain in place, however, are still considered necessary by the government to protect public health and the lives of the population in the circumstances, without prejudice to human rights.
Minister of the Interior Ales Hojs told Pop TV in the evening that the ministry would propose to remove restrictions on movement between municipalities, but that everything would ultimately depend on the evaluation of the expert advisory group at the Ministry of Health or epidemiological professions. Hojs estimates that, according to the epidemic, there could be more intense release of measures to stem the spread of the new coronavirus. When asked when restrictions on movement between municipalities could be eliminated, he could not speak accurately. However, he indicated that this could be no later than May Day.
Regarding the allegations of non-compliance with the principle of separation of powers, the Government explains that nothing has changed in terms of the relationship between the legislature and the executive because the state of emergency has not been declared. The government adopts all measures on the basis of valid legal bases adopted by the National Assembly, which can always change them if it deems it necessary, they added in a reply written in the message after the government session.
