During the first five months, the government has had to face extreme difficulty in the formation of standing committees and the Public Accounts Committee. NA Speaker Asad Qaiser went all in to ensure that the PAC and law and justice standing committees were formed, but other committees still face delays. Senate Standing Committee for Interior Chairman Rehman Malik said that legislation is the standard by which any government’s performance is measured. Senate Standing Committee for Law and Justice Chairman Javed Abbasi criticised the government, saying that under the rules of business, the premier had to form standing committees within one month of taking the oath of office. He said PM Imran will come to parliament and assured that the government will be active in crafting new legislation.
