Marriyum regrets repeated disruption in continuity of democracy

ISLAMABAD: Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb has on Friday said that democratic continuity boosts performance and prestige of institutions.

Addressing the participants of 4th National Management Development Course at Pakistan Institute of Parliamentary Services in Islamabad on Friday, she regretted that democratic continuity is disrupted repeatedly in the country.

The minister said that people derive strength from the Parliament and therefore, it is our responsibility to work for strengthening of the parliament. “Everyone should have access to the Parliament,” she added.

Marriyum lauded the services being rendered by NGOs in the fields of education, health and other social services.

She expressed the confidence that such courses for provincial legislators would help increase interaction and understanding between the Parliament and provincial assemblies.

The minister expressed the desire that similar courses should also be devised for media persons to give them better understanding of working of the parliament and role of parliamentarians.
