The committees of Parliament discuss and debate motions and initiatives for the enactment of laws and other regulations and other matters within the authority of Parliament. Committees monitor, within the limits of their competence, the work of the Government and other bodies whose work is overseen by Parliament pursuant to the Constitution and laws. Committees discuss the reports of bodies and institutions which they submit to Parliament pursuant to law. After conducting hearings, parliamentary working bodies adopt a position and establish draft legislation and report to Parliament thereupon.
Committees hold hearings on the petitions and proposals submitted to Parliament by citizens. If a petition or proposal for the enactment of legislation or other regulations is submitted by citizens to Parliament, then the Speaker of Parliament will direct it to the chairperson of the relevant committee which shall be obliged to notify the sponsor of the petition or proposal on the outcome of such petition or proposal within a period not to exceed three months.
