Committee Proceedings

A new National Assembly was elected at the general election held on October 1st, 2018. The Assembly has been summoned to meet on Tuesday, November 27, 2018, at 2:00 p.m. This first sitting will mark the beginning of the 1st Session of the 42nd Legislature.

The Committee on the National Assembly has a certain number of powers relating to the operation of the other parliamentary committees. For instance, the Committee

  • determines the composition of each committee
  • sets the date of the first meeting of each committee
  • assigns chairships among the parties.

The Standing Orders of the National Assembly state that the Committee on the National Assembly must meet to consider these matters, which must be decided unanimously, not later than the third day on which the Assembly sits following the election of the President at the opening of a Legislature. The Committee must also meet as often as needed during the Legislature.

Much of the work of the National Assembly is done by parliamentary committees. A committee is a work group composed of a set number of MNAs who, in the name of the National Assembly, examine issues that fall within the committee’s area of competence.
