The Shura Council held on Monday the second meeting of its 49th session, under the chairmanship of HE the Speaker Ahmed bin Abdullah bin Zaid al-Mahmoud.
The council reviewed His Highness the Amir's speech at the opening of the 49th session last Tuesday. Members expressed their appreciation of the Amir's praise of the Shura Council's role on the regional and international levels, most prominently organising the 7th Global Conference of Parliamentarians against Corruption in Doha (GOPAC). The Amir also congratulated the council on electing HE al-Mahmoud as Chairman of the organisation.
The members also highlighted His Highness the Amir's praise of the council's efforts in reaching an agreement with the United Nations to establish a UN counter-terrorism office for parliamentarians in Doha, that would be concerned with enhancing the role of parliamentarians all over the world.
The members also welcomed the announcement made by the Amir to hold Shura Council elections in October of next year, describing it as another achievement under the leadership of His Highness that will advance the work of the council, enhance popular participation in the decision-making process, support development efforts, and bolster stability.
The members also praised the content of the Amir's speech, saying it was comprehensive with clear objectives regarding the future and the commitment to implementing developmental programmes and projects, in addition to renewing Qatar's position regionally and internationally, particularly the Palestinian cause.
The Amir reiterated Qatar's position of supporting the rights of Palestinians, including establishing an independent state on the borders of 1967 with East Al Quds as it capital, in addition to reaching a just solution to the issue of refugees in line with international resolutions.
