The Senate Parliamentary Group of the Democratic Party of Equatorial Guinea met on 9th September in the Palace of International Congresses and Conferences in Ngolo, the provisional headquarters of the Upper Chamber in the city of Bata, to coordinate parliamentary activities to be developed during the Second Ordinary period of Sessions 2019.
Under the moderation of the President, Teresa Efua Asangono, the meeting, and overseen by the head Spokesperson for the PDGE Parliamentary Group in the Senate, Antonio Pascual Oko Ebobo, it served as an occasion to agree on the file issued by his counterpart from the coalition, Tomas Mecheba Fernandez Galilea, whose presentation was made by the secretary of the PDGE senate structure, Jose Domingo Ndong Bakale.
The document in question contained the proposal for the creation of mixed commissions of investigation in order to get to know the dysfunctional motives currently known by companies operating in the country, specifically the National Institute for Social Security, INSESO, the nation flag-bearing airline, Ceiba Intercontinental, Equatorial Guinea Telecommunications, GETESA and SEGESA, together with compliance with the prohibition on the export of round wood and the veterinary control of imported frozen goods.
The parliamentary groups see the need to carry out these tasks of investigation in order to respond to the new parliamentary techniques in legislative procedures controlling technical and legislative information, which allow the representatives to form a civic forum in which to debate, negotiate and build consensus regarding the restructuring of agreements and laws regulating and guiding society.
After carefully reviewing the file which was the subject of the meeting, which was attended by the Second Vice-President, Agustin Nze Nfumu, and members of the Senate Table, a debate was opened in which the members of the PDGE parliamentary group exchanged points of view on its suitability.
