Fisrt Session of KPK Assembly Called on 1st June 2013

KPK Assembly 1st Session called on 1st June 2013The first session of the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) Assembly under the newly elected government will be held on June 1, reported Express News on Monday.

Speaker K-P Assembly Asad Qaiser said that all arrangements have been made for the session.

Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) won the mandate in K-P in the elections and is set to form a government in an alliance with the Jamaat-i-Islami (JI).

From 2008-2013, the K-P Assembly paid a hefty price to sustain democracy: it lost the largest number of lawmakers as compared to any other provincial assemblies. Of the 12 lawmakers who died during the tenure of the assembly, at least three were killed in terror attacks.

Despite a wave of terror attacks and unrest in the province, the house was able to meet 439 times, and passed up to 102 bills during its five-year tenure from 2008-2013.

The assembly’s standing committees met about 662 times in the past five years.
