ISLAMABAD - Senate Chairman Syed Nayyer Hussain Bokhari has given approval for the soft launch of “Strategic Outlook and Work Plan of the Senate of Pakistan Administration,” said an official handout issued by the Senate Secretariat here on Friday.
The Senate Secretariat under the chairpersonship of then special secretary and now Secretary Amjed Pervez Malik has prepared this document aimed to clearly spell out a roadmap along with a measurable set of targets so as to ensure that parliamentary support services and staff are highly capable, professional and fully geared towards assisting Parliament and parliamentarians in performing their constitutional, legislative, oversight, representation and outreach duties effectively.
The plan in its entirety is an internal Senate-owned and driven initiative, spread on many months deliberations with all branches, with a focus on the present and future needs of the House and the legislatures and drawing upon international best practices and modules.
Under the patronage and as per aspirations of the chairman Senate, besides other much-awaited initiatives, a legislative drafting service will also be established to cater to the evolving needs of members. Roadmap has also been developed to improve physical infrastructure as well as enhanced physical and virtual interaction with media, civil society organisations, youth and general public.
This initiative is an idea subject to approval, changes, additions and alterations as and where deemed fit by the elected leadership and members.
