In this regard, the ruling party intends to agree on a consensus on the issues to be discussed with the opposition bench.
For the first time in more than three years, the FdT seeks to establish a dialogue to agree on the agenda on the projects to be discussed in the compound with the opposition blocs, who had proposed to call a special session separately. For this reason, the ruling party summoned the presidents of the blocks to a meeting of Parliamentary Work.
