DUSHANBE, June 2, 2016, Asia-Plus – An Israeli parliamentary delegation is arriving in Dushanbe today on a five-day visit, according to the Tajik MFA information department.

While in Dushanbe, Israeli parliamentarians will hold talks with senior representatives of both houses of Tajikistan’s parliament to discuss issues related to establishment of inter-parliamentary ties and bilateral cooperation between the two countries.

Diplomatic relations between Tajikistan and Israel were established in the early Ninetieths.

Tajikistan is the only Central Asia’s nation whose leader has not yet paid an official visit to Israel.

The Knesset is the unicameral national legislature of Israel.  As the legislative branch of the Israeli government, the Knesset passes all laws, elects the President and Prime Minister (although the latter is ceremonially appointed by the President), approves the cabinet, and supervises the work of the government.  In addition, the Knesset elects the State Comptroller.  It also has the power to waive the immunity of its members, remove the President and the State Comptroller from office, dissolve the government in a constructive vote of no confidence, and to dissolve itself and call new elections.  The Prime Minister may dissolve the Knesset.  However, until an election is completed, the Knesset maintains authority in its current composition.
