ISLAMABAD: The government on Tuesday presented draft of a bill in the parliamentary committee to form national accountability commission (NAC) in place of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB). The committee meeting was chaired by Law Minister Zahid Hamid at the Parliament House. The meeting was attended by parliamentary leaders of various parties. The law minister briefed the committee about the anti-corruption laws of India, South Korea and the US.“We presented the purposed law before the committee. We drafted this law when we were in opposition but then government did not agree on it,” he told reporters after the meeting. “Under the new law, there will be a chairman and deputy chairman of the NAC, appointed by the prime minister with the consultation of leader of the opposition in the National Assembly.” Both officials will be appointed for three years and this period will not be extended. Their services could be terminated through the Supreme Judicial Council, Hamid added.The minister said, “We have proposed that civil servants should submit their assets like politicians do. We considered the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s NAB law and Senate Chairman Raza Rabbani’s proposed law for anti-corruption. Members were briefed by the Law Ministry on the anti-corruption laws since 1947 and their impacts,” he added. All parliamentary parties would give their input in the next meeting that will be held on February 2.
