ISLAMABAD – The President Mamnoon Hussain has been scheduled to deliver his first speech in front of the Parliament which would also be his first attempt to break the record of predecessor Asif Ali Zardari.
President Mamnoon Hussain would be addressing the joint session of National Assembly and Senate on Monday 11 am.
The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) backed president Mamnoon Hussain would be addressing the parliament for the first time after his election last year.
Article 56(3) of the Constitution states: “At the commencement of the first session of the National Assembly after each general election and at the commencement of the first session of each year, the President shall address both Houses assembled together and inform the Majlis-e-Shoora (Parliament) of the causes of its summons.”
Former President and leader of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), Asif Ali Zardari, holds the most unique record in parliamentary history of Pakistan as he had the chance of addressing the parliament for record six times.
His last address was in last year after the formation of PML-N led federal government.
PakistanTribe reported on April 23 that Mamnoon Hussain would likely to address the joint session in May’s first week. However, due to political uncertainty and other issues, that could not be possible.
