Parliament Considers Vote of Confidence on Government [Archives:1998/22/Front Page]

June 1 1998

Parliament will start discussing the program of the Government of Dr. Abdul-Karim Al-Iryani, according to which the deputies will consider giving it their vote of confidence. The program, finalized by the government on Saturday, May 30th, calls for continuation of the reform effort. It also stresses sustainable development efforts.
Observers believe that the government is virtually assured of a “yes” vote in parliament. However, it remains to be seen if this government will surpass the 250 votes obtained by the government of Dr. Faraj Bin Ghanim, just over a year ago.
