LSG Meeting
August 16, 2004
Hotel Marriott, Islamabad

   

The second meeting of the Legislative Strengthening Group - LSG, was held at Islamabad on August 16, 2004. 8 members attended the meeting. The objective of the meeting was to identify a plan of action for the LSG based on the agreed upon role of the group decided in the first meeting. Participants discussed the LSG’s role in aiding the newly constituted Special Committee of the National Assembly to re-examine the Rules of Procedure and Conduct of Business, the parliamentary calendar, provision of research staff and facilities to legislators, a legislative training curriculum and other issues.

 
 

The LSG is a multi-party group comprising about 30 national and provincial legislators whose membership according to legislature, political parties and provinces is proportionate to their overall representation in the legislatures. Women form roughly 1/3 of the group membership.

 
 

The aim of the LSG is to consider and push parliamentary reforms and modernisation efforts in the legislatures aimed at parliamentary supremacy and effectiveness. The group is also expected to guide PILDAT towards an effective strategy and programme of legislative strengthening and capacity-building. The LSG is expected to serve as a multi-party forum for consultation which also facilitates unofficial inter-legislature contacts and encourages discussion and interaction between senior legislators and fresh legislators.
