Outstanding speaker Mirza continues as women’s caucus chair


Former National Assembly Speaker Dr. Fehmida Mirza has been allowed to retain her position as Women’s Parliamentary Caucus (WPC) Chairperson in lieu of her outstanding contributions and excellence.

Her appointment is followed by strict directives from the newly elected Speaker Sardar Ayaz Sadiq to provide her all possible assistance.

Dr. Fehmida has distinguished herself for being a non-controversial national assembly speaker during the past five years, lauded by all for her fairness and impartiality.

She also started the WPC for female parliamentarians, as continues to be the project’s patron-in-chief.

Sources said that this decision was taken with consensus by the former Assembly in its March 12 session.
