While the Palestinian Legislative Council has been conducting sessions in Gaza, it seems that the Palestinian government in Ramallah has established a High National Committee in order to produce a legislative plan for the Palestinian government. At a guest lecture on 28 February 2008 supported by the Konrad-Adenauer-Foundation at the Faculty of Law and Public Administration at Birzeit University in Ramallah, the work of this comittee was presented by Mr. Khalil Karajah Rifai. The committee will present a plan will include a map that defines the nature of the prospective legislation and a work methodology.
