Human Rights Legislation of Pakistan

In order for a bill to become law in Pakistan, it must undergo a legislative procedure in each house of Parliament that involves twelve to thirteen steps, including three readings in both the National Assembly and the Senate, followed by presidential assent.

This procedure is regulated by Pakistan’s Constitution and the Rules of Procedure of the relevant house.
