What role is an MNA supposed to play inside the National Assembly and vis-à-vis constituents? Is there a set of prescribed responsibilities to be fulfilled by each MNA? Do these responsibilities conflict with each other when it comes to the three-pronged role of Legislation, Representation and Oversight for each elected member? This background paper on Roles and Responsibilities of MNAs has been written to address some of these questions especially for the use of newly-elected MNAs. The background paper is authored by Mr. Omar Ayub Khan, Former MNA and Minister of State for Finance. Mr. Omar Ayub Khan has very skilfully penned his insight, experiences and ideas on the roles and responsibilities of MNAs in a style that is simple yet profound.
