On Monday 5th August, the President of the Senate, Teresa Efua Asangono, accompanied by the Second Vice-President of the same institution, Agustin Nze Nfumu, oversaw the meeting to plan activities to be carried out during the second ordinary period of sessions 2019. The meeting took place in one of the annexes to the Chamber of Deputies located in the Bomudi neighbourhood of the city of Bata.
The main aim of the meeting was to draw up the working agenda to be covered during the Second Ordinary Period of Parliamentary Sessions 2019, in addition to organising and classifying the various files and documents for analysis and allocation to permanent commissions within the stipulated time periods.
The organisation and coordination meeting also served as a framework for covering the issues that will be presented during the parliamentary seminar for senators, in order to enrich their knowledge and experience in order that they can better perform the task of defending the interests of the people they represent.
Of the files that will be the object of study, there are seven draft Laws submitted by the Presidency of the Government to Parliament, the execution report on the General State Budgets corresponding to the economic period to 31st June 2019, and authorisation and ratification proposals for international agreements and conventions.
Also included in the work of the second ordinary period of sessions are a total of five Proposals for Law from the Senate, including the Family Code Proposal for Law , whose legal instrument will follow analysis with the aim of protecting the family, ensuring its integration, well-being, and social, cultural and economic development, in addition to studying carefully and exhaustively all aspects contained within this legislative tool to reconcile family life with current demands. This work will be led by the Permanent Commission for Justice and Human Rights.
