The Riigikogu passed two Acts:
The Act on Amendments to the Public and National Holidays Act (582 SE), initiated by the Estonian Green Party Faction, which includes the Grandparents’ Day, celebrated on the second Sunday of September, in the list of national holidays, was passed with 81 votes in favour. This will help emphasise the role of grandparents in raising grandchildren and at the same time it will be a tribute to elderly people in Estonia.
The Act on Amendments to the Identity Documents Act (609 SE), initiated by the Government, which specifies the procedure for issue and return of diplomatic passports and provides the responsibilities in the use of diplomatic passports, was passed with 86 votes in favour. It also extends the circle of the persons who have the right to receive an identity card through a consular agent of Estonia.
