Bills on constitutional bodies and anti-corruption commission do not meet requirements of fight against corruption (I Watch and Al Bawsala)

Organisations “I Watch” and “Al Bawsala” consider that the two draft organic laws on the common provisions of the independent constitutional bodies and to the National body of good governance and fight against corruption discussed in plenary on Tuesday are likely to weaken the effectiveness of this body.

In a joint statement, the two organisations stressed that the draft organic law on the common provisions of independent constitutional bodies threatens the financial and administrative independence of the constitutional bodies.

Both organisations indicated that the draft law establishing the National Body for Good Governance and Anti-Corruption limits its ability to exercise the powers entrusted to it by the Constitution, particularly investigating corruption cases, which ends once the cases are brought before the courts.

The two NGOs condemned “the ambivalence of the legislative and executive powers to the issue of the fight against corruption” and called on the parliament and the government to adopt both bills in a form that complies with the principles of the constitution and the requirements of good governance and the fight against corruption.

They also underlined the importance of deepening the debate on these two bills in parliamentary committees in order to improve their content.
