8 July 2015

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has asked that the draft of Right to Information Bill be placed on the agenda of the next meeting of the Federal Cabinet for its approval, according to an article on JournalismPakistan.com and another in PakistanToday.

Sharif on July 3 asked the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting to introduce RTI bill in the next cabinet meeting.

The bill was approved by the Senate Standing Committee on Information, Broadcasting and National Heritage on July 15, 2014, and members at a recent committee meeting expressed concern over the delay.

“The bill is facing delays for about two years now and the matter should be expedited,” said Senator Farhatullah Babar.
