The Punjab Government is all set to reinstate the local government system in the province.
On 21th August, Punjab Assembly passed the Punjab Local Government Bill 2013 with a majority vote on Wednesday, after turning down a series of amendments, including for party-based elections, proposed by a treasury MPA.
According the opposition the new system will revive the office of the deputy commissioner (except for the magisterial powers) who will maintain a complete oversight on the elected mayor (for cities) and chairman (for rural areas). The bifurcation of urban and rural areas within the same district will further undermine these elected offices in the face of the DC backed by the provincial government.
To discuss the different aspect of this new act Punab Urban Resource Centre arrange a discussion with Mr. Reza Ali , President Punjab Urban Resource Centre, Lahore.
