National Defense and Security Council (NDSC)
 
The 2008 constitution does not define the day-to-day role of the National Defense and Security Council (NDSC). However, the Council takes a lead role in a State of Emergency, wherein it exercises the powers of the legislature, executive, and judiciary before the Parliaments are again formed.
