DOHA: The Central Municipal Council (CMC) says that authorities respond to only less than a third of its recommendations.
The CMC made 111 recommendations in its current session but it received responses from the authorities for only 37 of these, said a report issued by the general secretariat of the Council.
The Council expects that the current and fourth term would break all previous records, with more than 200 recommendations.
The Council during its first term made 59 recommendations, which rose to 53 and 114 in the second and third terms, respectively. The recommendations include issues important to the citizens and expatriates, like price hike, absconding domestic helps, used car showrooms, manpower agencies and shortage of parking spaces among others.
People wonder what the special committees set up at several ministries to coordinate with CMC are doing, Al Sharq reports.
The committee for coordination and follow up met every month and its last meeting was held before the summer vacation.
