Govt to convene ‘longest’ NA session in Pakistan’s history
Amid the coronavirus pandemic, the government has decided to convene a “marathon” session of the National Assembly.
Adviser to Prime Minister on Parliamentary Affairs Dr Babar Awan held consultations with Prime Minister Imran Khan and Speaker of the National Assembly Asaq Qaiser in this regard.
The adviser said the government will discuss the matter with the opposition in a meeting of the House Business Advisory Committee. This session will see the government present the budget for the next financial year besides legislation on different issues, he added.
The session is being called to complete 130 mandatory days of a parliamentary year of the assembly.
Both houses of Parliament had met last week to discuss the government’s response to the pandemic.
