Parliament’s joint sitting to take.

Parliament’s joint sitting to take ‘important decision’ today

In a major development, the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) led government on Tuesday rescheduled a joint session of the parliament to take “important decisions” to enforce the state’s authority in the backdrop of the March 18 clashes between the supporters of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and the law enforcers and the alleged attack on the Federal Judicial Complex.

Areas around the judicial complex had turned into battel filed when PTI Chairman Imran Khan — who was ousted from the government last spring via a vote of no confidence — arrived there to attend a hearing in the Toshakhana case.

As per the details, National Assembly Speaker Raja Pervaiz Ashraf, while exercising his powers under Joint Sitting Rules 1973, has made a change in the schedule of the joint session of parliament. Now, the joint sitting of parliament will be held on Wednesday (tomorrow) instead of the 10th of next month.

The meeting will be held on March 22 at 4 pm at the Parliament House in Islamabad.

The development came a day after a six-hour-long meeting of the heads of the component parties of the PDM — a 13-party ruling alliance — was held with Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif in the chair.

The high-level huddle of the ruling alliance was held after the premier’s meeting with Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Senior Vice President Maryam Nawaz in Lahore.
