News in Brief

Arab Times - - LOCAL -

The In­ter-Par­lia­men­tary Union (IPU) has adopted a pro­posal by the Arab Par­lia­ment (AP) on setting up a con­stant co­or­di­na­tion mech­a­nism among speak­ers of re­gional par­lia­ments, through a fo­rum en­ti­tled the “in­ter­na­tional fo­rum for re­gional par­lia­ments”.

The Arab Par­lia­ment said in a state­ment on Tues­day that this came in a mes­sage de­liv­ered by Pres­i­dent of AP Me­shal Al-Su­lami from IPU Speaker Gabrielle Brown on the move and the start of prepa­ra­tions for the fo­rum.

Brown in­di­cated in the mes­sage that prepa­ra­tions are un­der­way for hold­ing the first co­or­di­na­tive meet­ing to de­ter­mine pos­si­ble top­ics and ro­ta­tional re­quire­ments for the fo­rum, the state­ment added.

Al-Su­lami sug­gested the idea of es­tab­lish­ing the fo­rum while he was lead­ing the PA’s del­e­ga­tion to the 138th ses­sion of IPU held re­cently in Geneva, it noted. (KUNA)
