Closing ceremony of the activities” Enhancing the Role of Civil Society Organizations in the Legislative Process” - Foundation Office Palestinian Territories
The audience stressed that the political divide, between Fatah and Hamas, has blocked the work of the PLC and the principle of popular representation at the same time; which led to the fact that the Executive Body -the Government- has a de-facto monopole of power.
The audience was made up of PLC members, Fatah Central Council members, Fatah Revolutionary Council Members and Media representatives.
The outcome of the meeting was a number of recommendations which the coming PLC should take into consideration. These recommendations will be published in the “Performance of the Palestinian Legislative Council 2009,” booklet, which MIFATH and KAS are going to publish at the end of this month.
