7-29-2012 SWFloridaGuy: There is a meeting today for the selection of the HCL. "The Oil & Energy Commission and the Legal Committee are meeting in the House of Representatives today for the selection of a HCL that is consistent with the Constitution." That's great to see versions of the HCL submitted for approval. Last year the GOI ratified the HCL draft and submitted it to Parliament. The GOI introduced some amendments which were then reviewed by the Energy Committee. The Commission on oil and energy decided the draft law of oil and gas had constitutional violations and moved to amend the bill to reach a suitable formula that would be agreed upon between the political blocs. The NA objected and postponed it until now. Also today, NA leader Jaafari said "they can resolve the problem of Defense and Interior Ministries withing 2 weeks." If the political blocs reach a consensus on these issues (HCL & Ministers), that would be a huge step in the right direction for the GOI.
