Al-Zamili: The outset of the next legislative term will witness the assignment of the chairmen of all standing parliamentary committees

The First Deputy Speaker, Mr Hakim al-Zamili, chaired two separate meetings of the Parliamentary Integrity Committee, Labour and Social Affairs Committee and Civil Society Organisations committee on Wednesday 8 June 2022 in the presence of the Chairmen and members of the two mentioned committees.

During the meeting with the Integrity Committee, they discussed overlapping responsibilities and powers of some committees, particularly those that were split during the current session or created to keep up with state regulatory and legislative requirements, indicating efforts to revise the Council’s Rules of procedure to reflect new variables, end overlapping states, and determine the effectiveness of each committee in a way that ensures committee responsibilities are not overridden.

 AL-Zamili held another meeting with the Labour and Social Affairs Committee and Civil Society Organizations to discuss proposals on  Pension and Social Security Law for Workers. He stressed that the law will help create more jobs, revitalize dysfunctional sectors such as agriculture, industry, services, and tourism, and boost investment.
