The Shura Council held its regular weekly meeting under the chairmanship of Speaker HE Ahmed bin Abdullah bin Zaid Al Mahmoud on Monday via video conferencing.
At the beginning of the meeting, the Council welcomed Qatar’s hosting of the Office of the United Nations Counter-Terrorism Programme on Parliamentary Participation in Preventing and Combating Terrorism, in accordance with the agreement signed between the Council and the United Nations Counter-Terrorism Office. The office, which is the first of its kind in the region and the world, covers all parliaments of the world, and the opening ceremony received wide international participation, the Council noted.
The Council stressed that the opening of the office in Doha reflects the extent to which the international community appreciates the efforts of Qatar under the leadership of HH the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani in combating terrorism in all its forms and manifestations.
The Council then reviewed the two reports of the Legal and Legislative Affairs Committee on a draft law on the issuance of a law to combat conflict of interest and a draft law on the Shura Council.
After extensive discussions on the two reports, the Council recommended amendment of some of their articles, and decided to approve them in the amended form and refer its recommendations on them to the government.
The Council also reviewed the report of the Public Services and Utilities Committee on a draft law on the regulation of parking lots and the two reports of the Financial and Economic Affairs Committee on a draft law amending some provisions of the Qatar Financial Center Law promulgated by Law No. 7 of 2005, and a draft law amending some provisions of Law No. 34 of 2005 on Investment Free Zones.
After discussing the reports, the Council approved the draft laws and decided to submit its recommendations thereon to the government.
