Supervising Legislative Efforts of Government
The Ministry of Government Legislation, as the Central Administration Organization specialized in legislation, supervises and supports the government's legislative activi- ties of each department from the governmental and com- prehensive prospective.
We establish and enforce governmental legislation plans and support the government's legislative activities. We supervise the legal administration of government: for example, we ensure that subordinated statues and regulations, such as executive or ministerial ordinances are prepared at the appropriate times, or submit the examined bills and bills passed by the National Assembly to the Cabinet Council. Also we mediate differences of opinions among departments so that unified opinion is proposed at the parliament.
