With regard to children and family affairs, especially in light of his violation of the constitution and international covenants, by setting the age of childhood at 15 years. This was the case with the approval of the Culture and Information Committee on the media and press organizations bill, which has not been subject to a community debate so far.
On the other hand, the Parliament's qualitative committees discussed the draft consumer protection law, in addition to completing the consideration of the observations of the community dialogue on the draft law on the rights of persons with disabilities, which was subject to an extensive community debate in October 2016, which may result in green olives, and the parliament tree did not bear fruit. Feasible during the past week, as the branches, branches and trunk of the parliamentary tree were filled with 18 requests for briefing, 6 proposals for laws, 4 questions, 3 proposals for laws, 3 urgent statements, and an interrogation, but all this “vegetative growth” has not turned into fruits yet, The next few days may be judged by the color and taste of the olives that will come out, whether they are green or black.
