Disagreement between Islah & Government over Election Draft Law [Archives:2001/46/Front Page]

November 12 2001

The general election draft law provoked severe disagreement among the different members of Parliament, particularly between the General People’s Congress (GPC) and Islah.
The Parliament witnessed a war of words between members of the different political parties as a result of stark differences over some articles of the law pertaining to the identity card.
Some observers admitted that Tuesday’s session is a prelude to the new political crisis between Islah and the GPC as well as the other opposition parties.
The Islah Party insists on the necessity of amending some articles related to identity card, while this is opposed by the GPC.
