ISLAMABAD:  Most of the lawmakers from the lower house of the parliament seemed disinterested in being part of important lawmaking procedure or introducing their own legislation, which is their prime responsibility.

Nearly 200 MNAs, including parliamentary leaders of political parties, have never moved a single bill in the National Assembly during two-and-a- half years, which clearly reflects their level of interest in legislative business.

These 58 percent MNAs of total strength, mostly elected from the Punjab, took no interest in moving any bill. They did not even become part of a group of their party to move any bill for legislation, according to FAFEN’s data available to The Nation.

These MNAs, including parliamentary leaders, over half of the total strength of the house, from the day one of the current assembly till last sitting (28th session) never tabled a single bill. As many as 128 MNAs from the PML-N lawmakers took the lead by turning a blind eye to moving a single bill in the house, which is main part of their job.

The 32 MNAs of PPP also did not take interest in moving any bill in the house while nine PTI MNAs stood third, showing lack of interest in moving any bill, say the figures.

Most of the MNAs, mainly from back benches, seemingly did not participate in discussions on the bills as they only supported their parties.

The incumbent government, despite enjoying over two-thirds majority in the National Assembly, sometimes had to face difficulty to get bills passed because of thin presence. This government even could not maintain quorum pointed out by the opposition members of the house for six times in last two sessions.
