Shehbaz Sharif finally opens up discussion on budget in National Assembly

ISLAMABAD, June 19 (WNP): Following a week of ruckus in the National Assembly, the government and opposition Wednesday finally agreed not to disrupt a debate on the federal budget — presented on June 11 — giving Leader of the Opposition Shehbaz Sharif the opportunity to open up the general discussion.

The reconciliatory efforts of Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri brought both sides to the negotiating table on Tuesday.

During over hour-long negotiations between the government and the opposition representatives, the two sides agreed that they would listen to the speeches of each other with patience and without creating disturbances.

They also reached an understanding that a treasury member would be given the opportunity to speak after every speech of an opposition member.
