The First Deputy Speaker Mr. Hasan Karim al-Kaabi received in his office on Monday January 21, 2019 the head of the Rafidain Center for Dialogue Mr. Zaid al-Talakani and his accompanying delegation.
Al-Kaabi stressed the need to involve thinkers, specialists, researchers, civil society organizations and scientific and research centers in the process of lawmaking, being closer to the needs of the state and society and the executive bodies.
“There are many research centers and civil society organizations and even activists in various fields of our country able to make both a correct diagnosis and appropriate decisions. They have the will and strength to reform but do not have the authority to reform”, al-Kaabi said.
During the meeting, it was agreed to involve the researchers in the hearings of the Council, and grant them the right to participate in the process of lawmaking.
