Pakistan has achieved a significant milestone as newly elected MNAs have taken oath in the first session of national assembly. The country has just witnessed the second consecutive democratic transition.
Newly Elected MNAs Taking Oath
Ayaz Sadiq outgoing speaker of National Assembly administered the oath. The inaugural session of national assembly began with Holy Quran recitation and then Ayaz Sadiq reading out the procedure for nomination of deputy speaker and speaker. He later read out oath which newly elected MNAs repeated after him. The elections for speaker and deputy speaker of the national assembly will take places on 16th August. Newly, elected MNAs will vote for their choice of candidate.
An Interesting First Session of National Assembly
Analysts, journalists, and people think that new session of National Assembly was unique and exciting in several ways; mainly because it was the first-ever meeting of a lower house which was more likely to be led by PTI leader Imran Khan.
Here are a few more interesting things.
