Dr. Ahmed M Hamad (2020) Parliamentary Oversight Over the Acts Of Government Under The Palestinian Basic Law Of 2003 , Law .
ABSTRACT: Parliamentary oversight is the monitoring method over the acts of government in terms of its
performance of the authorized powers under the Basic Law of 2003. The objective of this paper is, therefore, to
examine the effectiveness of parliamentary oversight over the government's actions. The tools of parliamentary
oversight are the right to the inquiry, interrogation, parliamentary investigation, and withdrawal of confidence.
This article explains the applicability of the tools in the Palestinian legal system and the effectiveness of these
tools in influencing the acts of the government. In order to achieve the objective of this paper, the socio-legal
research using the qualitative approach was engaged. This study found that the parliamentary oversight in
Palestine was ineffective because of the ambiguity in the law, disruption, and suspension of Parliament, lack of
experience on parliamentary customs and the absence of partisan diversity.
