NA allows extension in accountability ordinance amid protest

ISLAMABAD: The National Assembly on Friday allowed an extension in the National Accountability (Amendment) Ordinance 2021 for another 120 days amid protest and voices of lack of quorum from the opposition parties.

Speaker Asad Qaisar allowed Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Ali Muhammad Khan to move a resolution to seek permission of the National Assembly for extension in the National Accountability (Amendment) Ordinance 2021 while ignoring the question of quorum being raised by an opposition member.

PPP Parliamentarian Agha Rafiullah was pointing out lack of quorum in the House but no heed was paid to his request and permission of the assembly was taken for extension in the period of the ordinance for 120 days with effect from June 9.
