A thread on #ElectoralReforms to enhance women participation & make next #GE more inclusive:

1. Around 12 million less women are registered as voters compared to men. #NADRA must be provided resources & directed to reach out to un-registered population/ women, to issue #NICs
within a year to enable them to vote.

2. Currently, it is #ECP discretion to declare poll in a constituency void, if less than 10% women voted. It is suggested that it must be made mandatory for #ECP, not discretionary, to declare poll void if less than 20% women voted, not just
in NA/ PA polls but also in #LG election.

3. #ECP must be mandated to take proactive measures to assess reasons of low turnout of women & other disadvantaged groups, facilitate their participation & take measures to remove any institutional or cultural barriers to free exercise

ابھی جبکہ شہباز شریف اور حمزہ کیخلاف مبینہ منی لانڈرنگ کا کیس زیر سماعت ہے۔
آئیے دیکھتے ہیں تحریک انصاف کو حکومت ملنے کے بعد کون کونسے کیسز پراسیکیوشن کی عدم دلچسپی کی بنیاد پر ختم ہوئے۔
اپریل 2019 میں نیب نے خود سے ہی اس وقت کے وزیراعظم عمران خان صاحب کے خلاف ہیلی کاپٹر کیس کی انکوائری بند کردی جبکہ اس کیس میں خان صاحب نے اپنا جواب بھی جمع نہیں کروایا تھا۔ 2/7

Please see evidence that the Prime Minister lied today when he made his faux apology, and asserted that, he was not aware that he was breaking his own covid rules. Photos attached next, in case this gets deleted. 1/3
This is absolutely conclusive, irrefutable evidence that Boris Johnson has broken the #MinisterialCode, and lied to Parliament. There should be no doubt, that he IS a proven liar, with nothing but contempt for his office and the electorate. He must resign!

Sajith at the parliament talks of the pulse of people from protests:

‘Let’s abolish executive presidency within the week.’

Now it’s time to walk the talk…Sajith.

#SriLanka #Parliament
I listened to the whole speech of @sajithpremadasa and he started out by saying we must change the Executive Presidency which prevents PM Prez power struggles!

Then he ended the speech with abolishment.

I hope that that final part was preplanned and was not on a whim.
Sri Lanka has a long list of leaders who said that in the past and ‘went back on it’.

Let’s hope @sajithpremadasa keeps to his word. We will be watching.

One of our followers asked last week about the different English Parliaments in the 1640s/50s - it can get very confusing, so here's a simple(ish) guide to the different ones - also follow our friends at @HistParl for more information too! 😀
#17thCentury #Parliament Thread 1/10
Charles I dismissed Parliament in 1629, ruling without it for 11 years. Embroiled in the Bishop's Wars with Scotland he recalled Parliament in February 1640. Members used it to air their grievances, so Charles dismissed it after 3 weeks - so becoming the 'Short Parliament'. 2/10
Still in need of money Charles was forced to call Parliament again in November 1640. This would become the 'Long Parliament', which stipulated it could only be dissolved with its own consent. Technically it sat in some form until March 1660! 3/10

1/ The paper detailing the assessment of costs & the schedule for the Restoration & Renewal of @UKParliament has been published. A summary thread 🧵#WestminsterRR #Parliament ⬇️…
2/ This is the paper that led the Commissions of both Houses to conclude earlier this month that the work should not proceed as originally envisaged.
3/ The cost of the Essential Scheme (original plan, requiring full decant from the Palace) is estimated at between £7bn (at P50 risk level risk so 50% chance of outcome being achieved) & £13bn (at P80 or 80% chance of outcome being achieved). This doesn’t account for inflation.

🧵NEW: Legislative Reform Order (LRO) laid before #Parliament today (31/1) to allow the two national commercial radio multiplex licences (due to expire in 2023 and 2028 respectively) to be renewed to 31 December 2035. /1…
LROs are a rare species of Statutory Instruments (SIs). Not including the 1 laid today (31/1/22), there have only been 4 laid before Parliament since the start of the 2017-19 Session. /2
LROs offer one of the highest forms of ‘strengthened scrutiny’ of SIs by Parliament. Relevant parliamentary committees can determine the level of scrutiny (including a ‘super-affirmative’ procedure), suggest amendments or even veto the SI. /3

#Parliament Day 2 of the special parliamentary session, deputy speaker @AzalinaOthmanS reminded MPs to put on double masks whenever they are in the House.

That's a good reminder as some MPs fail to observe proper wearing of masks and one of them did not bother to wear masks too.
#Parliament Right before the briefing by the Health Minister, MPs raised questions on the revocation of the emergency ordinance revealed by de-facto law minister Takiyuddin Hassan yesterday.

However, the minister said that he will explain next Monday.
