Committees approve 4-month deadline for governors to respond to church applications

 Five committees at the parliament approved Article 5 of the draft law on building churches that gives a governor a grace period of four months to license church applications. The committees are the Housing Committee, the Legislation Committee, the Religious Affairs Committee, the Local Administration Committee and the Culture and Media Committee.

 
The article obligates governors to respond to the application after four months of receiving it, and if rejected, they are also obligated to detail their reasons.
