KP Assembly-101

ISLAMABAD: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly has adopted a resolution demanding the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to facilitate transgender community in registration of their votes.

The resolution was tabled by PML-N female lawmaker Amna Sardar during 15th sitting of 21st session who demanded to contact ECP for giving voting rights to transvestites. She demanded respectable status for transgender community in general public by sensitizing society towards their rights like other human beings.

Moreover, three more resolutions were passed by the House during the same sitting of which two were tabled by Minister for Local Government Inayat Ullah Khan and one by PPPP lawmaker  Sahibzada Sana Ullah.

One of the resolution moved by Provincial Minister Inayat Ullah demanded to resolve the issue of blocked CNICs in the province. He said that all the blocked cards should be cleared within two months after constituting a special committee as absence of legitimate recognizable proof documentation had restricted the movement of huge number of people.

He tabled another resolution to abolish NOC requirement for entry of foreigners in the province which was also adopted by the House. He informed the House that Country Director DFID could not visit KP due to obligatory NOC requirement before visit and demanded the federal government to eliminate such entry requirements for foreigners in KP like that of other provinces.

Mr. Inayat Ullah said that government should encourage foreign investors by giving them ease towards getting NOC. Another resolution tabled by PPPP lawmaker Sahibzada Sana Ullah demanded to pay compensation to victims of Gudnai incident.
