Committees and subcommittees

The committees of the Saeima have an important role in the work of the Parliament. The committees work in a specific legislative field and prepare draft laws for consideration in the plenary sittings of the Saeima. They also carry out parliamentary scrutiny over the work of the government. Committees may have other tasks, for example, they verify whether public expenditures are justified, decide whether the Code of Ethics has been violated, or coordinate Latvia’s national positions on European Union issues.

The Saeima has standing committees as set forth by the Rules of Procedure. These committees are formed in each convocation of the Saeima. In addition, the Saeima may form ad hoc committees to undertake specific legislative assignments. In specific cases, the Saeima appoints a parliamentary investigative committee if at least one third of MPs request it.

If necessary, each committee may form up to two subcommittees.
