About three articles of the Constitution have been modified in the executive field; the mechanism to issue temporary laws in the absence of the Parliament has been modified, where it is restricted now to issue temporary laws in specific cases. The amendments in the area of legislation have required the government to resign within a week from the date of dissolving the House of Representatives. Also there were amendments related to the judiciary authority, notably the establishment of a Constitutional Court to review the constitutionality of laws in the country. With the issuing of these amendments, the state has worked to issue new modern laws aimed at achieving political reform, such as issuing a modern law of elections, a law of political parties and the law of high authority to supervise the elections and other laws
