Dr. Ahmed M Hamad (2020) THE PRESIDENTIAL POWERS OF THE PALESTINIAN MINISTER WITHIN HIS MINISTRY , Law .
The Palestinian Basic Law of 2003 affirmed in Article (71) of it about the Presidential Powers of the Palestinian Minister. The Palestinian Minister has the presidential powers that enable him to control the persons and works of his ministry’s employees because minister is considered the supreme administrative chief within the ministry, and all employees within it follow him. In addition, in many of its rulings, the High Court of Justice in Palestine confirmed the presidential powers of the minister within his ministry. An example of this is the appointment, removal, promotion, transfer, secondment powers. The objective of this paper is, therefore, to examine the Presidential Powers of the Palestinian Minister within his ministry and distinguish it from administrative guardianship of minister. Moreover, this article has explained the ministerial authorization of the minister. In order to achieve the objective of this paper, the socio-legal research using the qualitative approach was engaged. This study found that the Presidential Powers of the Palestinian Minister exercised according the principle of the rule of law. This issue has been affirmed through numerous judicial rulings issued by the High Court of Justice in Palestine.
