The Senate’s permanent committee today is handing over the draft law on “State of Emergency” to its expert commission for study before its upcoming plenary session.
During the meeting led by Senate President Say Chhum this morning, the committee decided to send the draft to the Commission on Legislation and Justice to study before sending a report back to the committee.
CPP Senator and Senate spokesman Mam Bun Neang said that the Senate is expected to hold a second permanent committee meeting this week before a plenary session set for Friday.
On Friday, more than 100 lawmakers unanimously voted to approve the “state of emergency” draft law.
