Lawyers want FATA merger in KP

Peshawar—Rahim Shah, President FATA Lawyers’ Forum has welcomed the suggestion of FATA Reforms Committee about extension of jurisdiction of superior courts to tribal areas but expressed concern over the proposed timeline for merger of FATA in KP by committee which suggested five years for this transition.
This timeframe means that there will be no representation of people of FATA in the Provincial Assembly in the 2018 election. If the government wants, then transition can take place before the elections in 2018.—APP
