Speaker of the House of Representatives (HoR) Abdullah Balihik said Wednesday in a briefing regarding the last two sessions of the HoR that the House has fulfilled its mandated tasks and referred the referendum law to the Electoral Commission, after the adoption of the tenth amendment and the fortification of Article VI.

He also insisted that the second article of the eleventh special constitutional amendment concerning the restructuring of the executive branch, nullifies any other legislative body, stressing that the HoR is the only sovereign authority authorized to issue laws and amendments.
