He also mentioned that there will be coordination among representatives regarding the formation of committees, with the aim of reaching a consensus.

He expressed hope that “we will experience government-parliamentary cooperation that contributes to fulfilling the aspirations and general welfare of the people.”

The members of the coordinating committee are Saud Al-Asfour, Dr. Abdulaziz Al-Saqabi, Dr. Badr Al-Dahoum, Hamad Al-Obaid, Abdullah Al-Anbai, Badr Nashmi, Dr. Adel Al-Damkhi, Dr. Mohammed Al-Dowsary, and Muhammad Gohar Hayat.
