The first bill approved for the first reading implements a reform at the Office of the Attorney General, in which the civil and criminal functions of the Attorney General will be separated.

The second bill reforms the Police sector and is linked with the first bill.

The third approved bill in the first reading relates to the constitutional commissions, while the fourth bill proposes changes in the Ombudsman office.

The fifth bill relates to the public service.
