President summons joint session of Parliament on Aug 30


ISLAMABAD (DNA) – The President of Pakistan has summoned the Joint Session of Parliament on August 30.

“In exercise of the powers conferred by clause (1) of Article 54 read with clause (3) of Article 56 of the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, the President has summoned both the Houses of the Majlis-e-Shoora (Parliament) on Friday, August 30 at 5 pm,” a press release issued by the National Assembly Secretariat said.

The president also summoned the session of the National Assembly on Monday (September 2) at 4 pm.

The National Assembly completed its first parliamentary year on August 12. More than 50 government and private members’ bills are lying pending before the house committees, which were constituted by Speaker Asad Qaiser after an inordinate delay due to a controversy over chairmanship of the powerful Public Accounts Committee.
