Draft of 18th amendment bill ready: Awan


ISLAMABAD: Law Minister Babar Awan said on Wednesday that the draft of the 18th amendment bill had been prepared and President Asif Ali Zardari will address a joint session of parliament when the constitutional package is tabled.

The federal minister said that talks of deadlock in the constitutional committee are baseless and the bill, which has been agreed upon by all political parties, would be tabled before the parliament during the current month.

He said that the amendment in the constitution would be made on the basis of two third majority.

The Parliamentary Committee on Constitutional Reforms, which had finalised a draft of the 18th Constitution Amendment Bill, 2010 is reported to have suggested some 100 amendments to over 70 articles of the Constitution.
