There Is Such a People, ITN party has submitted a bill for amendments to the Personal Assistance Act.

According to ITN MP Stanislav Balabanov, the idea is to improve the mechanism of providing assistance to people with disabilities, and to prevent misuse by tying the persons who are eligible to the compromised, as he puts it, system of territorial expert medical commissions.

“It is high time mothers of children with disabilities were given what they are owed, and for which they have been protesting in town squares for so long,” Balabanov commented.
