QUETTA: The opposition parties have submitted a requisition for the session of Balochistan Assembly at the secretariat on Saturday.

The opposition parties demanding a session of the assembly to debate over the key problems faced by the province including price hike, law and order and low gas pressure in the legislature.

A previous requisition of the opposition for the session of Balochistan Assembly was rejected by the speaker.

Speaker Balochistan Assembly Mir Abdul Quddus Bizenjo had turned down opposition parties’ requisition to summon the provincial assembly session, saying that he could not summon a meeting of the provincial assembly due to unfulfilled constitutional requirement.

“In case of requisitioning an assembly session, the application should carry signatures of at least 17 provincial lawmakers,” he said adding that two lawmakers, who signed the application were facing suspension from the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) over not declaring their assets.
