An MP: ‘The Government does not respond to
the proposals of the House of Representatives’

MP Jalal Fairuz reminded the Government of the need to expedite the return to the House of Representatives the draft laws or the amendment proposals that were sent to the Government for consideration and comment; so that the efforts of the MPs in preparation, formulation and approval of the proposals are not wasted. Fairuz said that the House of Representatives is waiting for the draft law of the National Human Rights Commission, which was approved a year ago. He added that ‘this law is one the most important to be passed by the Kingdom of Bahrain and is at the top of priorities to be implemented by the country in the context of the Universal Periodic Review’. He pointed out that there is an amendment proposal for the Criminal Procedures Act which is still in the hands of the Government awaiting its approval or rejection.
