AMMAN — The extraordinary session of Parliament, slated to be held in the middle of July, is likely to devote considerable space to the discussion of economic and administrative issues, in particular a new investment bill that would supersede all others before it, according to Al-Ghad News.اضافة اعلان

The session will also likely tackle the bills related to merging ministries, which may open the door to the government to carry out an extensive Cabinet reshuffle, in conjunction with the recommendations of the Public Sector Modernization Development Committee.

The permanent committees of the House of Representatives still have 45 draft bills and temporary laws to address, in addition to the reports of the Audit Bureau for 2018, 2019 and 2020, which are currently discussed by the Parliamentary Finance Committee, which hopes to include it in the schedule of the extraordinary session.

According to Paragraph 1 of Article 82 of the Constitution, the King may, when necessary, call the National Assembly to meet in exceptional sessions and for indefinite periods of time for each session, to approve certain matters indicated in the Royal Decree when the invitation is issued.
