Joint Sitting of Parliament Likely To Be Convened Next Week

ISLAMABAD: The joint sitting of the two houses of Parliament, called off on Wednesday, could be reconvened by the government next week.

Well-placed sources said that by summoning the joint sitting, the government wanted to control the embarrassment it suffered after postponing the joint session a day before it was scheduled.

The government’s allies, PMLQ, MQM Pakistan, GDA, and Balochistan Awami Party, were reported to have serious reservations about the functioning of the government and none of them assured the ruling party of voting for the government bills in the joint sitting.

The leadership of the ruling party asked its allies to express their point of view, about the bills, by Monday so that a decision could be taken about summoning of the joint sitting next week.
