> Multi-party Legislative Strengthening Group (LSG) formed
   
 
LSG Meeting
June 13, 2004
Islamabad Islamabad

   

PILDAT facilitated the formation of a multi-party Legislative Strengthening Group (LSG) in June 2004. The LSG is a multi-party group comprising 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.

 
 

The first meeting of the LSG was held at Islamabad on June 13, 2004. 13 members attended the meeting. The objective of the meeting was to reach an agreed understanding of the role of the LSG. Participants discussed the schedule of meetings of the LSG for the year June 13, 2004 – June 12, 2005 and reviewed and commented on PILDAT’s plan for 2004-05.
