How Pakistan Makes its Laws #Infographic

Laws are one of a civilized society's fundamental pillars, and separate us from the chaos that would erupt unless those laws were enforced and made. Most modern states have laws, and the state law is a serious matter, consisting of several steps to ensure swift and bias-free procedure.

But making a law is a long and arduous process in every country and a proposed bill can take a long time to see the light of day as enforced legislation. There are several measures to ensure a bill is in line with the constitution of the country and its socio-cultural boundaries.

A notice is issued in Pakistan by a Member of Parliament (subject to the orator 's approval) which is then published in the Gazette. When the bill was approved by the standing committee, all members read the resolution, and all put forward a motion under Article 124. If the bill seems repugnant to Islam according to some of the members, then the bill is referred to the Council of Islamic Ideology for approval. That is an important step, since the constitution of Pakistan is rooted in Islamic law.

When the bill passes the initial stage, there is a first session, in which all members discuss in detail the values of the proposed legislation and approve the legislation. Any changes considered necessary by the Committee members will be discussed at this point too.

A long cycle of further sessions and revisions follows, and the president gives his assent after the bill has been approved. The bill is eventually sent to the Senate, and becomes the nation's official rule.
