Bill seeks amendments to Legal Practitioners Act

ISLAMABAD: The Provincial Assemblies of Punjab and Balochistan did not witness introduction of passage of any private member’s bill during the ongoing 3rd parliamentary year.

The PML-N led government in Punjab and coalition government in Balochistan seem less inclined towards private members’ bills as none of them have even introduced or passed any such bill during the ongoing 3rd parliamentary year.

Three private members’ bills were passed by the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly during the 15th session of ongoing 3rd parliamentary year. Jointly sponsored by PTI lawmaker Sardar Muhammad Idress and  JUI-F legislators Munawar Khan and Shah Hussain Khan, the KP Assembly passed the KP District Development Advisory Committees (Amendment) Bill, 2015 on August 13, 2015. Another bill moved by PPPP lawmaker Ms. Nighat Orakzai, the House passed the KP Government (Fifth Amendment) Bill, 2015 on September 7, 2015 while the KP Right to Information (Second Amendment) Bill 2015 moved by PTI member Shaukat Ali Yousafzai was passed on September 10, 2015.

PPPP lawmakers in Sindh Assembly Ikramullah Khan Dharejo and Syed Faseeh Ahmed Shah jointly moved the Metropolitan University Karachi Bill, 2015 which was passed by the House. Similarly, another private member’s bill – the  Gambat Institute of Medical Sciences (Amendment) Bill, 2015 – was passed by the House which was introduced by PPPP legislator Pir Syed Fazal Ali Shah Jeelani.

Three other private members’ bills including the Sindh Prohibition of Corporal Punishment Bill, 2015; the Sindh Minorities Rights Commission Bill, 2015 and the Criminal Law (Protection of Minorities) Bill, 2015 have been introduced in Sindh Assembly and not passed by the House so far.
