Senate Standing Committee on Law and Justice
Published Date :
Nov 7,2017

Senate Standing Committee on Law and Justice in its meeting on Tuesday has asked the Law Division to check the composition of Council of Common Interests from 1990s till date to check which ministers were usually part of the CCI and to which provinces they belonged.  This was suggested while the Committee was discussing The Constitutional Amendment Bill, 2017 by Senators Murtaza Wahab and Saleem Mandviwala.

The meeting was held under the Chairmanship of Senator Javed Abbasi here at the Parliament House and was attended among others by Senators Farooq Naek, Mohsin Leghari, Muhammad Ali Saif, Murtaza Wahab, Secretary Law and Justice and Additional Draftsman. The bill under discussion seeks amendment of Article 153 asking that the members nominated by the Prime Minister shall be one from each province other than the province from where the Prime Minister was elected as a Member of the National Assembly. During discussion, the members suggested that instead of three members  from the Federal Government there should be four so that there is a representative from every province as Prime Minister does not represent a province but the whole of country. The bill will be further discussed in the next meeting.

Two Constitutional Amendment Bills, 2017 by Senator Mohsin Leghari seeking insertion of new Articles 95A and 136A were not accepted by the Committee about how the functionality of federal government and provincial governments will be in case of death of the head of government or the office becoming vacant by any other reason.
