ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi lauded on Sunday the role of Senate in safeguarding the rights of the federating units.
In his message on the 45th Foundation Day of the Senate of Pakistan, Abbasi extended his heartiest felicitations to the people of Pakistan.
The prime minister said the Senate was an integral part of the parliament and its role in legislative framework of the country by effectively guarding the rights of the federating units is highly praiseworthy.
He said Pakistan being a federal state would flourish more when federating units had better representation at the federal level.
Abbasi said the representation was well achieved in the House of Federation where all units had equal representation in terms of number and hence had more protection of their interests and rights.
The prime minister said he was hopeful that Senate of Pakistan will continue to play its due role to protect and preserve the rights of the federating units according to the true spirit of the federation.
