He will lead a top-level meeting which includes his deputy prime ministers to look at it on Tuesday, after which the draft law will be reviewed again during the Friday Council of Ministers meeting.

The law would then be sent ending to the National Assembly and senate before its ascension to the King for approval. The law is considered very very urgent.
