President to address joint sitting on Oct 3


President Arif Alvi will address the joint sitting of parliament on October 3 which will formally mark the beginning of the final parliamentary year of the present National Assembly.

National Assembly Speaker Raja Pervaiz Ashraf said that the lawmakers were busy in relief work in the flood-hit areas due to which the session was not called urgently.

The speaker made these remarks while hosting a lunch in honour of the Parliamentary Reporters Association.

Meanwhile, under the constitutional obligation, the annual ritual is supposed to be preceded by a joint sitting of the two houses.
