All government departments are responsible to record all meetings between the parliament members and first rank officials for better approach to issues, the decree says.
It adds all government department officials should avoid double standards in treatment of parliament members and respond to their legitimate requests.
Parliament members are responsible to organize their meetings with departments only through State Ministry in Parliamentary Affairs, the source said.
