The sources explained that the committee took into account the government and parliamentary proposal that decided to extend the maximum limit for setting percentages, population weights, and surplus professions to be a year instead of 6 months, as an expression of goodwill and cooperation, taking into account the existence of elections and a new government formation, and because the year is a maximum, and percentages, weights and professions may be set before that.
