ISLAMABAD (APP) – Caretaker Minister for Information, Broadcasting and Parliamentary Affairs Murtaza Solangi said on Wednesday the inaugural session of the new National Assembly would be summoned in accordance with law. 

“I need to sign the summary for the NA session as I hold the portfolio of Minister for Parliamentary Affairs,” Solangi said while responding to the queries of media persons regarding the procedure of summoning new National Assembly session, outside the Election Commission of Pakistan.

The minister said the ECP was required to issue official results within 14 days of the elections.

As per the Constitution, he stated, the president could convene the National Assembly session within 21 days of the polling date. 

“The last date for convening the NA session is Feb 29 and it can be summoned any day before it.” 

Solangi said any member of the National Assembly could contest the election for the positions of prime minister, speaker and deputy speaker. 

He told a questioner that legal forums were available for redress of grievances about elections and justice should prevail if any violations were committed. Those who had complaints should reach out the legal forums for justice, he added. 

Answering another question, the minister said the caretaker Balochistan government was trying to solve the problems as per law.
