PILDAT has been working with Provincial Legislatures as well as on performance monitoring of quality of democracy and Parliament and Provincial Assemblies. We have now decided to go a step further and engage with various Assemblies on how they may better utilize their rules to effectively represent, legislate and oversee the executive in the provinces. In this regard, we are bringing together some of the Provincial Legislatures to maximize learning through a number of workshops. This paper presents a background and comparative analysis of rules. PILDAT would like to acknowledge with gratitude the services of Mr. Inyat Ullah Lak, Dircetor Research Provincial Assembly of the Punjab who authored this paper. This briefing paper is prepared by PILDAT with the support of the Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA), Government of Denmark. We wish to thank them for their support.
