She added, "It was hoped that the oil and gas law would be sent to the committee for discussion, and then it would be sent to the legal committee and then presented to the House of Representatives for reading and voting on it, but political differences prevented that."
The committee member suggested that "the draft law will be presented in the new parliamentary session if there is a real political will to do so."
