18th amendment to be implemented by June 12th: Rabbani

Head of the Parliamentary Committee for constitutional amendment Senator Raza Rabbani on Tuesday said the implementation procedure for 18th amendment is laid out in the bill and hopefully it would be implemented by June 12th.
Talking to a private news channel he said an implementation commission would be constituted by the government, which will ensure the implementation of concurrent list and other issues.
Senator Raza Rabbani said it is the first assembly after 1973, which has amended the constitution and passed it. The previous assemblies only ratified the amendments suggested by dictators, he added.
Replying to a question the Senator said the cardinal point, during the amendment was that political or constitutional reforms should bring political stability in the country rather than instability.
“Therefore, we thought that good governance principle should be included in the constitution for future perusal so that no coming government could deny it”, he said.
