>multi-party parliamentary body to check ordinances

>PARLIAMENT will constitute a 15-member special committee today to scrutinise the ordinances to be tabled as bills and make recommendations on those, Shakhawat Liton writes in The Daily Star.
To be comprised of senior lawmakers from different political parties, the committee will be authorised to examine legislative proposals till the standing committees are formed.
Officials at the parliament secretariat said the matter has been included in the orders of the day. The legislature sits at 4:45pm today after a two-day recess.
A total of 122 ordinances promulgated by the immediate past caretaker government were placed before the House Sunday for decision within the next 30 days whether they would be ratified.
Parliament, however, will not have the opportunity to scrutinise merits or legality of all the ordinances. The law minister has already announced that only 45 ordinances would be tabled as bills.
The selection of the 45 on recommendations from an expert committee formed by the government means the executive, not the legislature, is determining the fate of the ordinances.
The ones that will not be introduced as bills will lose validity 30 days after placement in parliament.
