The Speaker of the National Assembly informally as Speaker National Assembly, is the presiding official of the National Assembly of Pakistan– a lower house of the Parliament of Pakistan.
To exercise the great authority that stems from the respect, affection and consideration which every Member of the House bestows upon the holder of this high office, the NA speakers shows complete impartiality in the discharge of his or her functions. When the National Assembly is dissolved he or she continues in his office, till a new Speaker is elected.
The Speakership of the National Assembly is a leadership position and the office-holder actively works to set the majority party’s legislative agenda. The Speaker usually does not personally preside over debates, instead delegating the duty to members of the House from the majority party. The NA speaker usually does not participate in debate and rarely votes.
