The Committees of the Timor-Leste National Parliament



ETLJB 07 October 2012 - There are 7 Committees in the East Timor National Parliament. The Committees are specialised bodies of parliament that give advice and make recommendations to the plenary authority concerning laws or decisions pertaining to their particular jurisdiction. There are two main types of committees. Some are ad hoc, appointed with a specific and narrow mandate, such as dealing with a particular bill or issue. The principle committees are permanent committees that provide advice on their specific fields for an entire legislative period. After being introduced into Parliamentary Plenary, draft legislation is then referred to the relevant committee for consideration, the proposal of amendments and recommendations before it is subject to a vote in the plenary. Permanent committees provide for greater continuity and facilitate the development of members’ expertise.
The Committees are comprised of members of parliament from all political parties represented in the chamber.

The seven permanent committees for the 2012 - 2017 legislative period are:

1. Committee A on Constitutional Affairs, Justice, Public Administration, Local Power and Anti-Corruption;
2. Committee B on Foreign Affairs, Defence and National Security;
3. Committee C on Public Finances;
4. Committee D on Economy and Development;
5. Committee E on Infrastructure, Transport and Communications;
6. Committee F on Health, Education, Culture, Veterans and Gender Equality; and
7. Committee G on Ethics
