ISLAMABAD:– The government on Monday decided to summon joint session the Parliament on Wednesday.
It may be recalled that the President had announced to convene a joint sitting of Parliament on November 11, but the session was adjourned due to concerns of the coalition partners.
PM Imran Khan met leaders of MQM, PML-Q and other coalition partners in which briefing was given to electoral reforms, use of electronic voting machines in elections and other issues and the concerns of the coalition partners were addressed.
Talking to media in Islamabad on Monday, Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry said that PML-N had appointed Rana Shamim as Chief Justice of Gilgit-Baltistan, adding that the PML-N has always made courts controversial.
He said PML-N leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Khawaja Asif held press conference after receiving court notice and the judge being named was not even on the bench.
It is pertinent to mention here that on November 10, the government had postponed a joint sitting of Parliament to reach consensus on other issues, including electoral reforms.
