ISLAMABAD, November 30, 2019: The Punjab Assembly took up heavy legislative agenda during 16th session held between November 18, 2019, and November 29, 2019. The House passed 17 government bills, adopted 12 resolutions and referred three bills and four ordinances to the relevant committees, observes Free and Fair Election Network in its session report.

The overall agenda during the session included 24 bills, 22 resolutions, 31 reports of Standing Committees, 14 adjournment motions (AMs), eight Call Attention Notices (CANs), two zero hour notices, one question of privilege and debate on a matter of public importance. The Provincial Assembly addressed 88 percent of the entire agenda but its oversight role of the executive remained unimpressive as it only managed to take up 25 percent of the Starred Questions during Question Hours.
