Islamabad: Babar Awan, Advisor to the Prime Minister for Parliamentary Affairs, submitted the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) Act 2020 and the 26th Amendment to the Constitution on Thursday.
Deputy Speaker of National Assembly Qasim Khan Suri has forwarded both bills to concerned standing committees while opposition lodged protest against not providing copies of the bills in National Assembly.
National Assembly also extended tabled ordinances for 120 days. Babar Awan, while responding to protest by JUI-F’s Shahida Akhtar against the extension, said that under the constitution of the country, parliament can grant extension to ordinances.
PPP leader Naveed Qamar said earlier that the House of Representatives is paralyzed because parliamentary work is being banned from an ordinance factory.
