The government of Pakistan has made another move to allay the concerns of the opposition in the Senate for the passage of the Constitutional amendment to pave the way for the delimitation of constituencies.
Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbassi has called a meeting of parliamentary leaders of both the Houses of Parliament – the Senate and National Assembly – to discuss the Fata Bill and passage of the Constitutional amendment from the upper house.
The sources were hopeful that in meeting today, a consensus would be reached to allow for passage of the Constitutional amendment in the Senate as well as for bringing the Fata reforms bill in the National Assembly.
According to sources, the government has approached the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) to get support with the assurance that all the concerns of the PPP with regard to the census provisional results would be removed if they support for the passage of the Constitutional amendment from the Senate.
