The Most Develpment of This Month
In spite of all the challenges facing MPs, the parliament has been able to accomplish greater achievements, attain better results and avoid abusing its competencies.
Based on the FEFA’s parliamentary monitoring reports,postponing the winter recess and instead discussing the national budget precisely and in more detail, approving the budget after assessing its ambiguous sections by adding more development programs are considered the main positive accomplishments of Wolesi Jirga in the month of January.
Furthermore, Wolesi Jirga re-approved the Draft Law on Jurisdiction and Organization of the Courts and theDisabledand Martyrs Draft Law with two third votes pro despite thethe president’s rejection to endorsethese documents.
It is worth noting that the Disabled and Martyrs Draft Law discusses the amount of 5000 Afsstipulated as monthly salary for the disabled and martyrs families, while the Draft Law on Jurisdiction and Organization of Courts mandates Wolesi Jirgato decrease the extension work period of aged judges after retirement from 10 years to 5 years to provide opportunity for qualified young judges.
