PM Kakar halts official duties

Citing the imminent swearing-in of the next federal management, acting prime minister Anwaarul Haq Kakar has stopped official duties and returned all summaries awaiting his approval.

All pending decisions and summaries, according to Kakar, will now be delayed until the next administration. “We are just waiting on the inauguration of the new government,” he said. “In addition, we will give the incoming administration an in-depth overview of our initiatives and activities.”

The National Assembly‘s first session on Sunday caused controversy when President Dr. Arif Alvi declined to give the go-ahead, ostensibly because the Sunni Ittehad Council (SIC) was not given the reserved seats.

Last week, independent candidates linked to the PTI joined the SIC, a relatively unknown political organization that now holds the majority of seats in both the Punjab provincial assembly and the National Assembly.

The PML-N argued that the NA speaker may call the meeting on her own after the deadline of February 29 expired, which led to an intensified impasse. A former worker of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) refuted this claim, nevertheless.

President Alvi received a summary from the caretaker ministry of parliamentary affairs on Monday, Marching Forward with the NA session.

President Alvi expressed worries about the completion of the reserved seat distribution process and used his constitutional right to postpone the session by 15 days in spite of the request.
