The proceedings of the Upper House of the Parliament on Friday were suspended following the failure of sound system as Senate Chairman Farooq H. Naek remarked "it should not recur in future". As the proceedings of the 55th session of the Senate started, the Chairman Senate noticed that even the recitation from the Holy Quran and its translation was not heard by the members as well as by the galleries. However, the system was restored after about fifteen minutes and the Chairman announced the panel of chairmen that followed some remarks by the Leader of the Opposition and PML-N Senator Ishaq Dar. The system again broke down when the Leader of the House Syed Nayyar Hussain Bokhari responded to the opposition senators' comments. Bokhari continued speaking off-mike but he was interrupted by Mian Raza Rabbani, who said proceedings should be stopped as sound recording system had encountered some problems and the proceedings cannot be recorded. After taking sense of the House, Chairman Senate endorsed Raza Rabbani's views and adjourned the House proceedings for 15 minutes. Later when the house resumed, the chairman said the system was working manually as the computer system has not been fully restored and only the mike of the member, who wished to speak, would be opened.
