Sindh Energy Minister Imtiaz Ahmed Shaikh has opposed ending representation of provinces in the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA). Provincial energy minister while criticizing withdrawal of provinces’ representation in electric power regulatory authority said it is an attack on the 18th Amendment of the constitution. Imtiaz Ahmed Shaikh said that the federal government has got passage of amendment in NEPRA Act from the Senate.
“The nomination of representatives in the electric power regulatory authority is a power delegated to provinces in the constitution,” he said. “We will protest if provincial governments denied the right to nominate representatives of its choice in the NEPRA,” the minister said.
