National Assembly Ayaz Sadiq Wednesday said reservations of opposition parties with regard to delimitation had been removed.

“The issue of delimitation have been solved after evolving consensus among the opposition parties,” he said while talking to media persons after chairing a meeting of parliamentary leaders on the delimitation issue in the wake of fresh national census.

He said on the demand of the Pakistan People's Party, the issue of delimitations had been discussed in the Council of Common Interests (CCI).

He said representatives of the PPP could not attend today’s meeting due to certain reasons, however, it was decided to meet again on Thursday to take PPP’s input.

“We want to pass the amendments after taking PPP into confidence, following which the bill will be tabled in the National Assembly,” he added.

The speaker said it was decided in the meeting that the number of provincial assemblies’ seat would not be increased like the National Assembly.

As per initial report, the new delimitations will decrease nine National Assembly seats of Punjab and increase four seats of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and three seats of Balochistan.
