Parliament Continues to Limit its Authority: 12 Questions for Each MP in Session

2016-11-05 - 11:59 p

Bahrain Mirror: The Legislative and Legal Affairs Committee in the Bahraini House of Representatives said that the number of questions that each Member of Parliament can raise to the ministers during the held session is only 12. This comes after the committee suggested a bill aimed at modifying the bylaws of the Parliament.

The Parliament will discuss the report of the committee on the bill in their session to be held on Tuesday (November 8, 2016).

If the council approves this bill, this means that the limited powers of the MPs will be reduced even more.

The council has already minimized its authority and imposed new rules on the MP who wants to interrogate any minister, stating that the MP has to take approval of two third of the council in order to raise any question. This move hindered the use of this mechanism in a practical way.
