When it comes to the activity of MPs of the 28th convocation of the Parliament in plenary sessions, the first half of the year was marked by the dominance of more experienced MPs, while the impression is gained that the new forces have been “overwhelmed” by stage fright.

As many as five MPs did not speak even once. These are Uglješa Urošević, Seid Hadžić, Gordan Stojović, and Nađa Laković from PES, and Artan Čobi from the Albanian Alternative, with the note that three out of these five MPs began their mandate in mid-November 2023, precisely on 16 November 2023, when the State Election Commission (SEC) confirmed their mandates as they replaced party colleagues who joined the Government. This applies to Stojović, Laković, and Čobi, while Urošević and Hadžić, therefore, since the beginning of the convocation on 27 July 2023, citizens who followed the plenary sessions could not hear their voices.
