The Parliament approved the ratification of the Council of Europe Convention on Preventing and Combating Violence against Women and Domestic Violence (Istanbul Convention), with 54 votes of the deputies from the Action and Solidarity Party. 

The deputies of the Bloc of the Communist and Socialist Bloc submitted an amendment that did not meet the number of votes and in protest, they left the meeting room, and three deputies from the Shor Party voted against it.

The treaty includes 81 articles with provisions that States parties ensure the prevention and combating of violence against women and domestic violence, the protection of victims, the prosecution of criminals, and the adoption of integrated policies.
