- The civil service continues to treat public consultation as a necessary evil - says Grzegorz Byszewski, an expert of the Employers of Poland.
The expert of the Employers of Poland reminds that social partners should receive no less than 30 days, and in particularly urgent cases - 21 days, to give an opinion of the project – Although admittedly the average time of consultation in relation to 2010 has lengthened by two days, but it is still far less than the statutory 30 days - says Byszewski.
The worst came out the Ministry of Finance that – including public holidays - left less than seven days for partners to submit comments. The Ministry of Environment fell best with an average time for giving opinion on a draft at the level of 26.43 days.
According to the Employers of Poland, the Ministry of Finance actually precludes reading the projects with the result that bad law is being enforced for the economy which next needs to be amended repeatedly. Therefore, it is necessary as quickly as possible to strengthen the dialogue and its institutions to be a real forum of the exchange of views rather than just a façade duty of the civil service.
