The Shura Council's Human Rights' Commission has already begun discussions on a draft bill that seeks to organize the right to peaceful demonstration and staging of strikes.
The proposed bill gives every person, legal personality and all of the political parties the right to organize peaceful gatherings and demonstrations if they notify the authorities concerned at least three days ahead of such events.
However, the bill gives the administrative authority concerned the right to prevent such events if it saw that they are deemed to disturb public order and security because of the objective for which they have been organized or because of the timing or any other serious considerations.
Meanwhile, the bill gives organizers the right to protest, through courts, at prevention decisions and categorically prohibits prevention of electoral meetings.
According to the bill meetings inside places of worship, schools and other government institutions are prohibited and policemen have been given the right to attend the meetings in order to maintain order and security.
