When facing new challenges, we must not derogate from respecting the principle of the rule of law, and parliaments must maintain their right to scrutinise the work of the executive branch,” emphasised Inese Lībiņa-Egnere, Vice-President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) and Chair of the Latvian delegation to PACE, on Thursday, 7 May, following a remote sitting of the Bureau and the Standing Committee of the Assembly.
