    • In the debates of each one of these topics, the depth and quality of the interventions of the members of the body have been evidenced.

    • Greater use and interaction with the permanent work commissions of the National Assembly.

    • Improve monitoring of compliance with the agreements of the National Assembly and the Council of State itself.
