ISLAMABAD—Pak­istan In­sti­tute of Leg­isla­tive De­vel­op­ment And Trans­parency (PILDAT) on Mon­day re­leased com­par­a­tive per­for­mance re­port of the four pro­vin­cial as­sem­blies in the third par­lia­men­tary year i.e. 2015-2016.

Sindh As­sem­bly’s per­for­mance re­mains high­est at 68pc while Balochis­tan As­sem­bly gets low­est score at 35pc Pun­jab and Khy­ber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) As­sem­blies tied for sec­ond place with scores of 66pc.

Ac­cord­ing to the PILDAT re­port Sindh and Balochis­tan As­sem­blies post high­est at­ten­dance of mem­bers at 34pc each fol­lowed by KP As­sem­bly at 32pc while Pun­jab cut a sorry fig­ure at 13pc.

Sindh As­sem­bly in­tro­duced most of the Pri­vate Mem­bers’ bills and the scored hov­ered at 9, KP and Pun­jab As­sem­blies in­tro­duced 1 each while Balochis­tan As­sem­bly in­tro­duced none of the Pri­vate Mem­bers’ Bill. KP As­sem­bly has been the only Pak­istani leg­is­la­ture to trans­act all busi­ness in the House through Com­put­ers and mod­ern IT fa­cil­ity.

Pun­jab CM Shah­baz Sharif posts the low­est As­sem­bly at­ten­dance i.e. 5pc Balochis­tan’s CMs Nawab Sanaullah Zehri and Dr Ab­dul Ma­lik Baloch post high­est com­bined at­ten­dance i.e. 59pc.

In the three par­lia­men­tary years, Balochis­tan As­sem­bly failed to elect all the Chair­per­sons of Stand­ing Com­mit­tees and this also adds to neg­a­tive per­for­mance of the as­sem­bly. Pun­jab As­sem­bly passed the high­est num­ber of bills i.e. 46 fol­lowed by Sindh As­sem­bly at 28pc, Balochis­tan As­sem­bly at 23pc while KP As­sem­bly passed 18 bills.
