Punjab Assembly: Women’s Protection Bill withheld for consultation

By: Aroosa Shaukat

LAHORE: The Punjab Assembly passed the Punjab Motor Vehicle Transaction Licensees Bill, 2015, and an amendment to the Provincial Motor Vehicles Bill, 2015 on Thursday. The much-anticipated Punjab Protection of Women against Violence Bill was not laid before the assembly after opposition and treasury benches agreed on further consultation on the draft.

Deputy Speaker Sardar Sher Ali Gorchani chaired the session that started more than two hours later than scheduled.

The bill related to women’s protection was not tabled in view of reservations expressed by some lawmakers. Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said the government had agreed to consider recommendations in this regard. He said lawmakers had three days to bring forth their recommendations. He said a committee including members from the opposition would review the amendments. He said 50 per cent of its members would be women.

Several members, including Azma Bukhari, Faiza Malik and Syed Waseem Akhtar, praised the minister for his proposal. Malik said this would set a good precedent in terms of ensuring effective legislation.
