Consumer activists urge passing of bill

Draft stuck in lower House since last year

- +

The Foundation for Consumers and its alliance hope that reform efforts will speed up the passing of a consumer protection bill for the establishment of an independent consumer protection body. 

The bill drafted by civic groups earned the approval of the upper House last year. The bill was later forwarded back to the lower House for final consideration and was stuck there due to the dissolution of parliament on Dec 9 last year.

The bill calls for the establishment of an independent body to protect consumers' rights in different areas, such as public services, housing, health services, finance and banking, and medicine and health products.
