Joint meeting of Council of Ministers and Shura Council

In response to the royal directives of His Majesty the Sultan of Oman about strengthening communication between the Council of Ministers and the Council of Oman, a joint meeting between the Council of Ministers and the Shura Council members was held today morning in the presence of His Highness Sayyid Fahad bin Mahmoud, Deputy Prime Minister of Council of Ministers and Sheikh Ahmed Al-Esa'i, president of the Shura Council.

Following the meeting on TV when it was aired after 5pm news, I can tell that lots of things were discussed between the ministers & the members of the Shura Council. Other than that, apparently different views were exchanged between the ministers & the members of the Shura Council which is pretty nice. It's more of an open session between the Shura Council & the ministers, where all the members of the Shura Council are free to stand with any minister & the Deputy Prime Minister, question him/her about various things and also exchange views with them.

The meeting was aired on TV with both video & audio, and following it gives an expression that it would be a fruitful meeting and also the upcoming joint meetings between the Council of Ministers and Shura Council would be fruitful inshAllah.

I loved how informal it was .. and I think it creats a connection between the two councils .. and gives the Shura more strength to give out thier opinion.

Yeah, I've noticed how informal it was, which was very nice!

I totally agree with you that such meetings give the Shura Council members more strength to give out their opinions and discuss various things with the minister in such meetings.
