Parliament Excludes The Inclusion Of Important Bills On Its Agenda


Sumerian special   2022-12-08 | 03:12   Source:   Sumerian   250 views   Not including important laws on the parliament’s agenda has become commonplace. Many economic laws are of interest to citizens, such as the social security law and the oil and gas law, which is scheduled to be passed during the current session.


There are many laws within the corridors of parliament, between suspended and suspended, and many are also waiting to be included on the agenda for a vote. A failure followed by another for the Council and a deep slumber in it, as the previous agendas were absent from the pensioners’ salaries law and social security, which are considered a priority for many.


The oil and gas law, too, has not seen the light since previous parliamentary sessions due to the dispute over the mechanism for managing the oil fields, and the controversy is still present despite the existence of a draft law since the year two thousand and six, amid the possibility of making amendments to it in the event that Parliament took the decision to include it on the agenda.   LINK


Deputy: Three Reasons May Postpone The Provincial Elections


1,167    Representative Mudar Al-Karawi confirmed, on Tuesday, that postponing the provincial elections in 2023 is possible for three reasons.


Al-Karawi said, in a press interview seen by Taqaddam, that “the provincial councils are constitutional and cannot be abolished,” noting that “the decision to dissolve them came in accordance with legal implications, but their return now is a must, especially noting the negative aspects of their absence from the government scene in most of the provinces.”


He added, “The government has set a date for holding the provincial elections in 2023, but it is possible to postpone it for three reasons, which is the need to complete its law and make important changes in the Commission and the provisions of the law in addition to financial allocations and the extent of the general atmosphere that gives greater participation to the vote.”


He pointed out that “the return of the provincial councils is a fixed decision that cannot be changed except through a constitutional change, and this matter is difficult in light of the general conditions of the country.”


The House of Representatives for the last session decided most of the provincial councils 3 years ago, after large demonstrations in several provinces.
