Committee of Privileges is made up of the President as the chairman and four senators nominated by the Committee of Selection at the earliest time possible after the opening of each session.
The Committee of Privileges considers any matter which appears to affect the powers and privileges of the Senate and issues a statement regarding the matter to the Senate.
When the Senate is not in session, any member can inform the President of any matters that affect the powers and privileges of the Senate.
If the President is satisfied, the matter can be handed to this Committee. This Committee can then issue a statement to the Senate regarding the matter.
This Committee has the power to summon anyone to be present before it, to request for the issuing of letters, and issue statements to the Senate from time to time.
