PLC Relations

A Draft Basic Law for the Palestinian National Authority entered into force in July 2002 to provide a provisional constitutional framework for the Palestinian state until the peace process comes to its end and the Palestinian state is officially declared..

The basic Law defines the powers of the Palestinian Authority, provides for regular presidential elections and a system of political balances between the cabinet and the Parliament. This Law is to serve as a base for the constitution. Accordingly, the PLC managed to make relations with several International and Arabic Parliaments through parliamentary visits and continuous cooperation in different fields.

The Palestinian Legislative Council through the Palestinian National Council became a member, observer, or partner in different International parliamentary organizations such as:

1. Inter-Parliamentary Union.

2. Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (Partnership for Democracy).

3. Parliamentary Assembly of the Union for the Mediterranean (PA-UFM).

4. Arab Parliamentary Union.

5. Parliamentary Assembly of Organization for Security & Cooperation in Europe (OSCE PA).

6. NATO Parliamentary Assembly. (NATO PA)

7. Parliamentary Union of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.

8. Inter-Parliamentary Assembly on Orthodoxy ( IAO).

9. Pan-African Parliament.

10. Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean.
