Tomorrow, Sunday, King Abdullah II will inaugurate the second ordinary session of the 19th National Assembly, with a speech from the throne.
The two Houses shall, within fourteen days of the Throne address, submit their responses separately.
After listening to the speech from the throne, the 29th Senate will hold its first session under the chairmanship of its president, Faisal Al-Fayez. Last September, the National Assembly’s regular session was postponed until November 13, and the Assembly was called to meet as of Sunday.

The position of Speaker of the Council shall be won by the one who obtains the absolute majority of the attendees (half the number of attendees + one), if the candidates for the position are more than two, but if the two candidates are only two, then the winner shall be considered the one who obtains the relative majority. No candidate obtained that majority, the election is re-elected between the two candidates who obtained the highest votes, and whoever obtains the relative majority is considered the winner, and if the votes are equal, a lottery is drawn between them.
As soon as the election result is announced, the elected president is invited to assume the presidency, then the process of electing the first and second deputies takes place one by one and in the manner in which the president was elected. Among two or more candidates for the same position, a lottery is held between them.
After electing the members of the permanent office (the president, his two deputies, and his assistants), the council elects a committee from its members to formulate a response to the throne speech, in preparation for its approval by the council, and submitting it to the king.
At the beginning of each regular session, the deputies choose the members of the 15 permanent parliamentary committees.
