The right-wing Popular Orthodox Rally (LAOS) party on Friday tabled a draft bill in Parliament that seeks to restrict peoples' rights to freely gather and demonstrate or hold marches, ostensibly in order to prevent these rights from being abused.

According to LAOS, these rights were currently being exercised abusively and in ways that were in violation of other provisions of the Constitution, which called for the protection of professional freedom and the free participation of citizens in the economic and social life of the country, as well as the right to move freely and without restrictions throughout the country or the right to employment.
