(Independent) ... Bahar Mahmoud, a member of the Parliamentary Legal Committee, revealed today, Sunday, the existence of "an impermissible order" in the election law that the House of Representatives voted on last week.
Mahmoud said, in a statement received by Al-Mustaqila, that voting on the election law without adding the schedule for allocating seats to constituencies is not permissible, noting that she challenges this measure because in this way it will not be part of the law.
Mahmoud explained that the schedule for determining and allocating seats to electoral districts should be completed before voting on the electoral law, so that it is part of the law and obligated to implement it.
She added: At the present time, the entire law was voted on without a vote on the schedule, despite the mandate of the Legal Committee to organize it, and this is not permissible, noting that even if Parliament approves this schedule, it will not be part of the election law and may make it subject to manipulation of the number of seats between the districts.
