Provinces Debate in NA unconstitutional: Rabbani

ISLAMABAD:  Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on National Security  Senator Raza Rabbani opposed the idea of debating over new provinces in the National Assembly  against the will of PM and president. In a blunt discussion with media representatives in the parliament house, he declared the idea of forming new provinces debate in the NA was reflective of a centrist mindset, and termed debate on a resolution in the NA to form new provinces was unconstitutional and illegal. According to constitution, resolution over the formation of a new province should first be passed in the respective provincial assembly and then be brought for debate in the parliament
