 ISLAMABAD  : The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) on Monday reached a consensus with the ruling party to hold a session of the Lower House after an earlier submitted requisition notice to call a session was withdrawn, reported Express News.

Speaker orders NAB to ensure Shehbaz's presence for NA session

Under the rules, the speaker is bound to convene the session 14 days after submission of the requisition notice by February 10.

However, the government seeks a delay in the assembly session as a number of key foreign personalities are visiting the country.

In a bid to resolve the issue smoothly, the government contacted the opposition party in this regard through Speaker NA Asad Qaiser.

The office of the speaker had requested the PML-N to withdraw their requisition notice, insisting that Islamabad has already sent a summary to convene the NA session on February 18.

At this, the parliamentary committee of the PML-N agreed to withdraw the earlier submitted requisition notice.

Islamabad and the PML-N have also agreed to coordinate with each other on matters related to running the NA sessions in the future.
