The Parliamentary Legal Committee confirmed, on Saturday, that 126 laws are suspended in the drawers of the House of Representatives, noting that the laws are related to health and the economy, and others related to trade unions and federations.
The deputy head of the committee, Mortada Ali Hammoud Al-Saadi, said in a press interview that "126 laws have been included in the House of Representatives since the previous sessions, awaiting political consensus."
He added that "there are laws that have been politically disputed since 2007, including the oil and gas law and the law of the Council of Supreme Policies for State Administration."
He pointed out that "disrupting laws is due in terms of approval or amendment to the absence of political consensus regarding many of them," stressing that "resolving laws is a necessity in order to complete building the state and defining powers."
