Civil Society – Parliament Interface

This is the presentation that I gave in Karachi in 2008. The participants were MNAs, Senators, MPAs, Civil society and media. The presentation covered different aspects of interface of civil society and parliament, and description of the best practices around the world on people-parliament partnership for efficient legislation and oversight of the executive branch.

Present on the occasion were Mr. Nisar Khuru, Speaker Sindh Assembly, Mr. Taj Haider senior leader PPP, Ms. Sadiq Salahuddin Chairperson SPO along with scores of other political personalities of Karachi. At the end of the session, Mr. Nisar Khuru announced the establishment of a Petitions Committee in Sindh Assembly, in his concluding remarks.

The Petitions Committee is the key to bridge the gap between people and the legislators in the sense that citizen can directly approach their representatives through submitting petitions, thus enabling them for better and responsive legislation and overseeing the actions of the government. If this Committee is run professionally and efficiently, it can become a best practice among the world democracies and bring a unique feather to Pakistan's hat.

I assure Sindh Assembly of my assistance as far as its running on professional lines is concerned.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
