Since that word is not specifically defined within this Act, or defined universally under a different Act, the common English definition applies: "a group of people officially charged with a particular function".

The circumstances, composition, and function of Positional Commissions is discussed within this Act.

And there is actually precedent for the definition "a group of people charged with a particular function" through its use in that way in the Act on Parliamentary Commissions and Committees.
