Forming the Sixth Senate
The sixth Senate resigned on 28/11/1962. It was formed on 29/11/1962 and continued operating up to 31/10/1963. As a result of such resignation there was controversy on the interpretation of article (88) of the Constitution whether the Article indicates reassigning Senate members for four years following the resigned senate should be done before the expiry of the period indicated in Article (65) of the constitution, or the term of the newly assigned members should last up to the end of the resigned Senate member term. An explanatory resolution was issued through a majority decision by the Higher Council for Interpreting the Constitution (Resolution No. (1) of the year 1963). The resolution stated that when vacant positions due to death, resignation, or otherwise, the term of the newly appointed members cannot exceed the end of the term of the previous members who vacated the positions. According this interpretation there is no difference between the resignation of one member and all members. The resolution explained that the Constitution did not include any article allowing the renewal of membership of all members for four years. The Constitutional rule is that the term for the Senate membership is the continuation of four years. Since the term of members of the Senate was not completed, and their positions were vacated due to resignation, the term for the newly appointed members lasts up to the end the resigned Senate members’ term. Any other interpretation would go against Article (65) of the Constitution that defined the membership term with four years. Therefore, the resolution stated that this Senate would still be called “The Sixth Senate”. This Senate was chaired consecutively by Sa’eed Al-Mufti and Samir Al-Rifa’I as Speakers, each for two years. It was composed of 30 members as follows.
