A new National Assembly was elected at the general election held on October 3, 2022. The Assembly has been summoned to meet on Tuesday, November 29, 2022, at 2 p.m. This first sitting will mark the beginning of the 1st Session of the 43rd 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.
